HTML email is hard. Not only do we have to build emails with tables, we have to inline our CSS which makes for a disjointed and not very friendly development workflow.

Support across clients, devices and browser varies, and in a world where over 50% of emails are opened on mobile devices, responsive email design has never been more important.

Lets look at the current state of HTML email, how rendering differs across clients, how to optimize for mobile and how to automate your workflow using tools like Grunt and Sass.
