I'm rebuilding an email notification tool for the office's clients. The tool will send 20 to 50 emails per day to email recipients outside our domain. Subsequently, "playing nice" with recipient spam filters is important. Trying to keep the HTML/CSS under the email reasonably simple, I'm basing my emails off Sean Powell's emai_lite.html
boilerplate shared here: GitHub Repo
. Sean makes a comment in the repo README.MD file that strikes me as odd.
DO NOT COPY OVER COMMENTS AND INSTRUCTIONS WITH THE CODE to your message or risk spam box banishment :).
Is Sean implying that the presence or lack thereof of HTML comments in email_lite.html
can affect how the incoming email is classified by the receiving spam filter? That seems weird to me.
