    milkandhoney, are you willing to look at a "seriously" hacked version of your html? I think the bugginess can be worked around by changing the structure, but it's early yet <smile>. Obviously, it will not be a plug-n-play fix. Just an example of how to change the widths and table layout to make it work in spite of Microsoft... which means, you'll have to adapt and style my hack to work with you cms <smile>. I'll give it a try if you're interested. Your structure as indicated by the comment marks will be altered.

    If I use a bit of css, will mailchimp turn it into in-line code for you? (I've never heard of mailchimp, sorry.)

    Have you validated it?
    I'm no star in coding, but it gives the impression that some things are defined more than once like "externalclass" appearing twice, plus "externalclass *". If you are determined to use the existing code, maybe renaming parts in such a way that they are more intuitively indicative of what they do and more clearly different will help to narrow down where the bug is.

    Code:
    .ReadMsgBody{
    			width:100%;
    		}
    		.ExternalClass{
    			width:100%;
    		}
    		.ExternalClass *{
    			line-height:120%;
    		}
    		body{
    			width:100%;
    			background-color:#DDDDDD;
    			padding:0;
    			margin:0;
    			-webkit-text-size-adjust:none;
    		}
    		span.yshortcuts{
    			color:#000;
    			background-color:none;
    			border:none;
    		}
    		span.yshortcuts:hover,span.yshortcuts:active,span.yshortcuts:focus{
    			color:#000;
    			background-color:none;
    			border:none;
    		}
    		.ReadMsgBody{
    			width:100%;
    		}
    		.ExternalClass{
    			width:100%;
    		}
    		body{
    			width:100%;
    			background-color:#DDDDDD;
    			padding:0;
    			margin:0;
    			-webkit-text-size-adjust:none;

    By the way, and this question applies to all, can you really ever have a perfectly rendered newsletter? Or will the various newsletter clients always have bugs that cause issues?
    I think this may be pretty close... for Outlook, anyway. I would be grateful if you would test this and let me know how it works.

    (This is not "polished", but should be sufficient for testing alignment.)

    Thanks ronpat

    I will test this and get back to you.

    I think as previously stated, the issue is most likely caused by the footer, the image added by mailchimp as the default "monkey rewards" system for free accounts, which I cannot control and outlook adds the border as I don't have the fix to set borders to zero for OL

    My hacky test page is probably incompatible with the template you're using and therefore useless to you, but I will be grateful if you can give it a test in your environment.

    My theory is that there's nothing wrong with the footer. The problem is of course the buggy Outlook behavior, and the "fix" is careful table layout methods; such as not assigning a width to nested tables, or only assigning a width to the left column of the two column section. The thing that makes this layout difficult is the full width 600px image.

    Am looking forward to hearing how it renders for you. If you are able to capture a screen shot, especially if there are bugs, I'd enjoy seeing it. Thanks very much, milkandhoney, I appreciate your time and trouble.
