@asouers >> @RetailEmailBlog Ouch, you've got a machine gun over there! I kinda like it.

@emailjuan >> I wish Outlook didn't suck #emailwishlist

@emailjuan >> I wish people would stop referring to email campaigns as email blasts #emailwishlist

@knuss >> I wish I would stop receiving plain text welcome emails #emailwishlist

@aliverson >> I wish Chad would stop filling my twitter stream with his email wishes! #emailwishlist (just kidding, promise!)

@KNLorenz >> @RetailEmailBlog I wish more of the C-Suite "got" email marketing & put resources in to make it successful #emailwishlist

@KNLorenz >> @RetailEmailBlog I wish marketers would increase their email frequency smartly during Q4/holiday season #emailwishlist

@RetailEmailBlog >> Thanks @emailjuan @knuss @aliverson and @KNLorenz for sharing your #emailwishlist. Anyone else have wishes to share?

@timbay >> @retailemailblog I wish people would stop proclaiming the death of email #emailwishlist

@timbay >> @RetailEmailBlog I wish companies used all of the info they have about me to provide truly relevant/personalized emails #emailwishlist

@KFinnegan >> @RetailEmailBlog I wish there was a common email rendering engine (NOT created by Microsoft) used by all email services #emailwishlist

@paulmconnolly3 >> @RetailEmailBlog As a designer I wish more marketers had a dedicated email strategy. No more last min "blasting" #emailwishlist

@EmailEnergetics >> @RetailEmailBlog I wish #emailwishlist. more emails would use display:block on images so there aren't so many emails broken in Gmail

@MarkatEMR >> I wish for more emails that inspire me to smile, laugh, think, escape, dream...and still hit the buy button #emailwishlist

@simmsjenkins >> +1 RT @MarkatEMR: I wish for more emails that inspire me to smile, laugh, think, escape, dream...and still hit the buy button #emailwishlist

@jacaldwell >> @RetailEmailBlog i wish all email vendors will adopt the S.A.M.E email metric standards by Christmas http://bit.ly/aXmNfu #emailwishlist

@rorycarlyle >> @retailemailblog I wish that clients would impose a standardized rendering engine for ease of development. #emailwishlist

@jacaldwell >> @RetailEmailBlog i wish emailers would understand appending means data to email addresses, not the other way around #emailwishlist

@inboxgroup >> @RetailEmailBlog I wish "industry average open/click rate" would just die. #emailwishlist

@scottcohen13 >> +1 RT @rorycarlyle: @retailemailblog I wish clients would impose a standardized rendering engine for ease of development. #emailwishlist

@scottcohen13 >> I wish email vendors would require at least a week of best practices training with each new customer. #emailwishlist / cc @RetailEmailBlog

@inboxgroup >> +1 RT @scottcohen13: I wish email vendors would require a week of best practices training 4 new customer. #emailwishlist @RetailEmailBlog

@KNLorenz >> @scottcohen13 You can try to teach a man to fish, but if he doesn't want fish, it'll be a waste of both parties' time. cc @retailemailblog

@scottcohen13 >> @KNLorenz True, but I call it due diligence. You have an excellent reason to say no to a client if you've performed due diligence.

@inboxgroup >> You can always tell them to fish somewhere else. RT @KNLorenz: @scottcohen13 cc @retailemailblog

@rorycarlyle >> RT @KNLorenz: @RetailEmailBlog I wish more of the C-Suite "got" email marketing & put resources in to make it successful #emailwishlist

@KNLorenz >> @scottcohen13 I hear ya, but to an ESP, best practices are not the same thing as accepted practices.

@KNLorenz >> @inboxgroup "Batch & Blasts" will not & should not get you kicked off an ESP. It's all about education & helping those that want it improve

@scottcohen13 >> @KNLorenz True, again. But you can spend the time teaching basics of permission, CAN-SPAM, deliverability, etc.

@scottcohen13 >> @KNLorenz For example, my co-workers didn't understood that Hotmail controlled what went to the inbox for their customers.

@scottcohen13 >> @KNLorenz I'm guessing 6 out of 10 of your new customers are not as locked in as I am or you are into even accepted practices.

@Lukes_Tweets >> I wish ESPs would make it easier to export individual data points by subscriber/message. #emailwishlist @scottcohen13 @RetailEmailBlog

@KNLorenz >> @scottcohen13 @inboxgroup Agreed. We have all new clients sign an agreement not to violate our permission policies & walk thru it w/ them

@inboxgroup >> AMEN @Lukes_Tweets: I wish ESPs would make it easier to export individual data points by subscriber/message. #emailwishlist @RetailEmailBlog

@scottcohen13 >> @KNLorenz I understand. The exercise was #emailwishlist. Since I'm a client, I'll have a diff perspective on what vendors should provide.

@KNLorenz >> @scottcohen13 Absolutely - and it's good insight from the other side of the aisle!

@KNLorenz >> I wish for emails that show the marketer I've done business with has any idea who I am and what my interests are #emailwishlist

@KNLorenz >> RT @rorycarlyle: I wish that clients would impose a standardized rendering engine for ease of development. #emailwishlist (KL: YES)

@dkrier >> RT @Lukes_Tweets: I wish ESPs would make it easier to export individual data points by subscriber/message. #emailwishlist

@joe262_ >> @RetailEmailBlog I wish more folks would use text/plain , or text/plain within multipart/alternative (No. i wont "upgrade") #emailwishlist

@kheilbrunn >> @emailjuan Me too! http://bit.ly/cfZmr3 #emailwishlist

@emailjuan >> That's amazing! RT @kheilbrunn Me too! http://bit.ly/cfZmr3 #emailwishlist
