Emails with "display:none"


R

Ryan

Emails I send through Outlook appear blank, however when looking at the source I see the
text I wrote with the HTML tag "display:none".

So I've sent myself an email--it showed up blank--then forwarded to myself again. The
forwarded email shows the text fine, as well as the original text in my first email.

I think the "display:none" is the problem, but I don't know why it's being put into the email.

Thank you for your help.

Similar to a phishing technique I used to use.

Stop using Word as your email editor and life will return to normal.
