To create a responsive HTML table for email, you can follow these steps:

  1. Start by creating a basic HTML structure for your email template, including the element to define the table and and elements to define rows and cells within the table.
  2. Add inline styles to your table to make it responsive. You can use the following CSS properties:
  • width: 100% - This will make the table fill the entire width of the email.
  • max-width: 600px - This will set a maximum width for the table to prevent it from becoming too wide on larger screens.
  • border-collapse: collapse - This will remove any spacing between table cells.
  • margin: 0 auto - This will center the table horizontally within the email.
  1. Use media queries to adjust the table layout for different screen sizes. You can define different styles for the table based on the screen width using the @media rule. For example, you can change the font size or padding of the table cells on smaller screens.


Here is an example of a responsive HTML table:

    <th>Header 2</th>
    <th>Header 3</th>

You can customize the styles and layout of the table as needed to fit the design of your email template. Make sure to test the responsiveness of the table by previewing it on different devices and email clients.
