If I can add an additional tip, those using a template engine should take the extra time to design a different template per major ISP. The tiny bit of extra work WILL pay dividends if it means your mail looks as good as possible for each client.

ie. Design a slightly different (test the rendering of course) template for AOL Mail versus Yahoo Mail versus Hotmail versus Blackberry (mobile) addresses, etc... then a generic template for anyone using their own domain name email.
Thanks man!

I never tested ISP specific templates, what a great idea. Nice one! Thanks for adding that to this thread.
