Reading an email from the cell phone or tablet is a totally different experience than do it from a computer: the behavior and user interaction with the content is different and therefore the challenges to grab their attention, too.
Edisonda agency recently published a study that explains how the users of mobile devices perceive and process email messages. The "Mobile Eyetracking in e-mail marketing" report gives us interesting information about how text, images and the structure of our emails influence the way in which we capture the attention of our subscribers, and how retain the message content and interact with it.
