HTML can hurt your email deliverability and part of the reason is because spammers use HTML to carry out their dirty deeds. I want to share with you a resource to ensure that you don’t accidentally end up formatting your HTML emails with similar codes that might get you labeled as a spammer.

Spammers use invalid, broken and downright malicious HTML code – why? To hide their real content. Hence some ISPs are very strict in their approach to filtering HTML messages, and detect HTML syntax and format errors as signs of potential spam – because these are indeed fairly common tactics used by spammers.

An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of emails hitting the inbox, and avoiding being marked as spam!

Have a great weekend!
