Hi Alex,

It all depends on how your email template has been developped. What version of Android ? The oldest versions used to be quite difficult to develop for.

Hi Alex,

It probably means it has been developped using media queries only, and not a complete email fluid development approach. The problem is that Media queries are supported by iphone, but only on the most recent versions of Android devices. Android devices take a full inlining of the CSS code to work.

Is there no way to treat the container like a full width text container or any other full width container? the backgound colors can be adjusted in those

The styling you are using (-webkit, -ms, mso, -moz) is not supported in older versions of android.
