What settings are needed to create responsive emails in Outlook?

Bootstrap and other CSS settings which work on web pages don't work when viewed in Outlook on phones and small form factors.

I know this problem has existed for years. Not sure if this has changed over the years. Any resources or HTML template to handle this would be appreciated. Thanks.

Here are a couple of good resources for HTML emails. Yes email clients are still a huge pain to develop for.

Hi Brandon, Thanks for the resources. Have you found them effective with Outlook and one better than the other?

Hi David: Thanks for your response. I've learned that Outlook supports an old version of HTML (or maybe Word), but I've received what seem like responsive emails in Outlook, so I'd like to know how that's done.
