Join Chris Converse for an in-depth discussion in this video Suggestion for Yahoo! Mail incompatibilities, part of Creating a Responsive HTML Email.
Now the issue we have with Yahoo Mail is…that Yahoo Mail does not support the media query statements.…So the medium screen rules and the small screen rules are all being seen by Yahoo.…The media query that's specifying the individual sizes is not being supported.…So one work around that we have is we…can convert our class based selectors to attribute based selectors.…So we would do this by converting table…dot container into table and then inside square brackets…class equals container.…Right now this is not being supported by Yahoo, but…it is supported by all of the other email clients.…
And if at some point Yahoo does begin to…support the attribute selectors but not the midi queries.…My second suggestion would be to make your small graphics…wide enough to encompass the wide window inside of Yahoo Mail.…So the small screen banner and small screen background…graphic need to be wide enough, somewhere around 640 pixels,…so that it doesn't look like a mistake when…the small screen rules render inside of the larger screen.…
