We're working on an updated newsletter template to reflect the updated site design.  It's still in the design phase, but wanted to get this on your radar.  Still working out timing.  Will update with more details soon.

We have the PSD for the updated email nesletter. We need the PSD to be coded in email friendly html.  All CSS should be inline.  More details on 

Files located: 
http://dl.dropbox.com/u/18740830/Moz/Mozilla_Newsletter_Redesign_Final.zip

We'd like to have this for our April newsletter. Need by April 11.

Notes for slicing:
- All css should be inline 
- Keep hotmail in mind when you are coding

Hotmail:

Partial/No Support:
    Background-image
    Background-position
    Margin
    Background-position a:hover
    Border
    Font-family names with quotes
    Font inheritance
    List-style-image

Thanks!  Let me know if you need anything else.

Hey there.  Any update on timing for this?  Can we plan on having these sliced by April 11?

Also - just a quick clarification.  There are two files.  One has a sidebar and the other does not.  We're planning on testing these versions to see which performs the best.  The files are precisely the same with the exception of a sidebar - so we'll need two templates delivered - but essentially, you're coding one version and then removing the sidebar for the second.

Thank you!

Hey guys - just checking in on the coding for this.  We're counting on this for our newsletter next week.  We'll need it no later than Thursday to test and load up content.

Hey Steven - Can this get done this week? Doesn't have to fall into our release cycle since it's a newsletter template. Winston is depending on this for the newsletter he's going to send early next week.
Target Milestone: 2.0 → 2.1

I talked to Steven yesterday and he has it under control, although I'll keep you in mind, Milos, for future templates. Your help would be appreciated!

Thanks Milos - we're pretty far into this now - probably doesn't make sense to hand off at this point. I have a few other html-email bugs that are getting neglected though. Stay tuned.
