Html message with simple button


Hi all

Anyone know how to create an html message that includes a button.?

Cheers in advance


Google has the answer. However, this will only work in an HTML email, not a text email, so make sure you have a text alternative offered for those who block html mail.


I tried the following but didnt get a button… any thought what might have gone wrong?

  1. Put this text in compose message
> <table width="100%" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0">
>   <tr>
>       <td>
>           <table cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0">
>               <tr>
>                   <td style="border-radius: 2px;" bgcolor="#ED2939">
>                       <a href="" target="_blank" style="padding: 8px 12px; border: 1px solid #ED2939;border-radius: 2px;font-family: Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif;font-size: 14px; color: #ffffff;text-decoration: none;font-weight:bold;display: inline-block;">
>                           Click             
>                       </a>
>                   </td>
>               </tr>
>           </table>
>       </td>
>   </tr>
> </tab
  1. Send a test email to my gmail account.

  2. email account looks like this


You can create HTML button from online tools. Just drag and drop for enabling HTML messages.


Can you say why the above code I posted did not work… The above code does make a html button… It just does not appear in the sent email.


Possibly something wrong with other html in the message. The button displays fine for me in my gmail account
