  1. What's the idea behind inline CSS and email templates?
  2. Are there any plans for allowing email templates to use external CSS links and make designing email templates a little bit more modern similar to how CSS is used to design web applications today?

Email. Ah, email. I’d love to see email clients catch up with this millennium, and support something other than inline CSS and table markup. On the other hand, I can see why loading external CSS into an email message might be a bad idea. There’s a lot of opportunity for privacy and security violations there.
