It was a great overview of the differences of web vs email html structure and limitations of email clients.

It helped improve my understanding of things I've been using for a while now, and it was good to be walked through a few things that will help me troubleshoot my email building in future.

I learned some valuable reasons about why mark up is the way it is. It was great to be able to understand why certain code is there, and what happens if it is omitted.
