    The worst case scenario now will be Outlook, which made a huge deal last month out of getting their shit together.

    There are a bunch of smaller clients that will probably never change. But — as with web development — check your analytics and know specifically which clients you need to design for.

      I'm not sure I agree with your last point — the worst case scenario is the client you need to design for. If 80% of our user base can see the email perfectly, but 20% can't, it's the 20% I need to design for.

        If that number is 20%, sure. What if the number is 20? What if the number is .2%?

        Depending on how many users are on obscure or outdated email clients or web browsers, many companies make the call to ignore them because it isn't worth the additional time cost.
