    This is great! I am redeveloping our emails for our campervan brands and this is a perfect way to include both our vehicle clearcut and cutaway images which we use site wide for all brands.

    Thank you so much!

      That is awesome Niven. I’d be interested to know how it goes!

    I tested in Gmail, Yahoo, Hotmail, AOL and the interaction doesn’t work in Gmail and Outlook 2010. Looks great in other desktop clients like Yahoo , Hotmail and AOL. Amazing tip, thanks for sharing!

      Unfortunately as you probably know Gmail doesn’t support embedded styles and hence pseudoclasses like :hover, and Outlook 2007+ is in a totally different planet, for now these techniques won’t work with them.

      You’re welcome!

    As this is using the hover element, this won’t work on mobile devices, correct? Which is a shame as such a high percent of users now open emails on mobile devices. Sure this is more like a nice to have feature than something which will effect how the email is viewed. But I think currently I’m leaning more towards developments in emails which are mobile friendly.

    It is probably not possible to make the hover work in an email signature, since you can’t put the styles in the head then, can you? Or am I missing something?

    • Justin

      You should be able to make it work by having the styles in the body.

    Thank you Justin for the hard work. Sent a test via the tool. Doesn’t seem to work for AOL.

      Apparently AOL doesn’t like the > as in x > y in the CSS. I made a tweak to the CSS and it works now :)

    Looks like this is no longer working in Yahoo Mail Desktop – are you getting the same results? If so, do you have any ideas on solutions?
