PDF to Email - Outlook viewing


PDF to Email - Outlook viewing

When Using the PDF to Email option, the pdf will not display in my email when I view it through outlook (even if I choose display images/ download pictures).  If I make the document physically shorter, it will display properly.  Is there a way to display the pdf correctly in the email, or does outlook require a specific length?  The PDF that views correctly is 6.8"x20".  Anything longer than 20" either cuts off portions or does not display at all.


NOTE: It displays in the outlook app and web page properly, just not the outlook desktop program.  It also displays properly in other programs like gmail etc.


Hi @SarahM3571


Thanks for joining us in the Community! We certainly understand why its helpful to understand how Outlook respond with your campaigns. Outlook uses an engine that has a 1728 pixel limit. For more information on this please click here. As a result, to avoid this from occurring it would be best to break up these PDFs into individual files or text blocks so the email isn't as lengthy.
