Emails we send

Rationalising our emails

Currently we have no style guide for the emails we send from the archive. These emails are important! The way we present them can change the way users experience the archive.

I suggest (as always) a rationalisation of mailings: a simple html template, minimal styling (colour branding), and a short style guide section to go in the Archive Style Guide I have begun developing:

Emails Style Guide


Email styles have to be kept simple. There should be no positional layout whatsoever, as the only way to achieve this is with tables. I suggest using html 4 and only styling headings. Semantic HTML 4.01 should be employed. This is a small simple project, but requires input from ADT, Docs, and possibly Abuse/Admins.
