However when arrives is is being rendered in Outlook (2003) at just 7.5 points (which feels pretty darned small to me at least!)
We are currently using a fixed width of 600 pixels for our emails - but what with modern screen resolutions getting higher (particularly on the New iPad 3!)... it is tempting to go higher. Obviously if you too far an simply let the email splurge to full width then the user can end up with very wide lines, which can be v hard to read.
Also my client is promoting highly visual (fairly upmarket) products so images and exact layout are extremely important.
And the trouble with raising text size is that if we do keep the width at 600 pixels, there really isn't much room for the text - particularly if one is using more imaginative layouts with more than one column...
- What is 'best practise'?
- Have any of you guys done any A/B split testing experiment to discover what actually works best for you?

"Do you mean for tables tags?" Yes.
"Perhaps you mean <TD> tags?" That as well. Set the table width at, say 95%. Inside the table, set the td width at a % as well. The point being is that the table will expand to the ratio of the viewing area, and not be fixed. Make an HTML page and then shrink/expand your browser viewing area to see how it works.
"OK, but how then do you control the width of columns and exact layout of images etc?" It won't look exactly the same for every computer, that's the point. If you want it exact use exact measurements.
