Results of Testing Email Clients

Postby Jason|Dyalog on Wed May 06, 2009 11:14 am

We have tested the Dyalog Forums E-mail Digest with various email clients to see which ones give the best results. The tests were done using HTML emails, Text email's will depend on the font you have selected for your client.

Results of our tests:

Outlook 2007:

Outlook 2007 doesn't load the style sheet, though APL characters appear OK here there's some interesting spacing

Thunderbird - Linux:

This seems to be the best I have come across so far. Loads everything it should and looks as it would on the website.

Round-Cube (Webmail)

Again, Round-Cube doesn't load the style sheet, however, the spacing looks OK, providing your web-browser is set to use APL384 for Unicode (some browsers - firefox - don't require you to do this) the APL Characters look OK.

All my clients seem to display APL properly.
THey don't load the stylesheet, but that's probably what I want.
