Windows Phone DOES support CSS3 Media Queries in HTML email


Being a Windows Phone user I felt compelled to share some recent discoveries regarding HTML email and Windows Phone. If your in the HTML email game you’ll probably know about great sites like Campaign Monitor, Litmus, Email on Acid etc. that provide resources and documentation on how to create cross compliant email templates and how to target mobile devices. One area I have noticed that is lacking information, is Windows Phone and specific information on its support for CSS3 and Media Queries. In fact, some of the information out there is no longer accurate, thanks to a few recent new discoveries.

Having trouble accessing CRM 2011 in Internet Explorer 11?

CRM 2011

Don’t worry your not the only one. Its a known problem that only Microsoft has recently officially acknowledged via their Knowledge Base. Unfortunately at this time of writing Internet Explorer 11 doesn’t play nice with CRM 2011. You will find that you just get a 404 error after logging into your CRM system. No one knows if Microsoft is planning to fix this, I REALLY hope they do, as yet again THEIR own browser is breaking THEIR own products (remember the whole Outlook Web Access thing as well). Well fortunately there are a couple of workarounds to this problem, so if you happen to live on the bleeding edge, fear not!

After looking around I found a fix for the issue, but it seems there are many ways to solve this error.

IPv6 tunnels on DD-WRT with 3.x kernel builds

DD-WRT Web Interface on the ASUS RT N66U

DD-WRT has recently been compiling firmware’s using the 3.x Linux kernel compared to the 2.4 and 2.6 builds. These newer kernel builds provide various improvements to the firmware. Being someone has been using K2.6 builds for a while, I decided to take the plunge and upgrade and check out how my setup worked on 3.x builds. One major setup I have is a Hurricane Electric tunnel setup on the router for IPv6. This didn’t work the same way it did on K2.6 and required some additional work. Here’s my adventures of IPv6 in DD-WRT on the 3.x builds. Hopefully providing some useful information for anyone else wanting to do the same thing
