With a fixed layout, it’s all about compromises. You need to balance between how wide the email is on a computer with a width that also works on a narrow phone screen.
While 480 pixels is kind of narrow on a desktop, it looks good on a phone if you double-tap it to shrink-to-fit.
||Tips for fixed layouts
When you have a layout bigger than 320 pixels wide (e.g., 480 pixels), you’ll need to make the text a little larger than you might be used to, so when the email shrinks to fit on your phone it is still legible.
