As far as Preview goes, I believe that’s the same metric across any email service provider. Same goes with the fact that gmail turns off most ezine images by default, even after you’ve approved the email.
Thus, you can use these two stats as evidence your views are actually much higher than reported.
I’m not sure what you mean that it “breaks.” Do you mean that it can’t be printed at all, or that it doesn’t format correctly and some of the right column gets cut off, or something else completely?
What percentage of people want to print these out? It can’t be that big…I would think.
In any case, if you’re willing to put in the extra work, or organizations are willing to pay you for your time, you could create a clickable link at the top right for a printer friendly version that’s a PDF.
Or, do what we do for the flyte log, our email newsletter. We include a link at the top that says “View mobile/web friendly version here” which takes them to the same content on our website (which is mobile optimized.) You could just reword that to say,” View Print Friendly version here” and send them to your website.
Does that help?
