Outlook creates Black Borders Where None Are Defined in HTML


  • I have been creating HTML email templates for Outlook and have run into a problem where the template displays correctly in a browser, but Outlook introduces a black border around one of the table containers for the right hand sidebar. All borders are set to width:0px; or border="0", everywhere within that section of the containing table and nowhere in the entire template is there black borders defined. Is this a known issue with Outlook, is there a simple fix that I'm not understanding? All styles are defined in the styles section before the <body> tag and again in line in case one mail client likes a style definition section and another likes in-line styles. I have done everything I can think of to get rid of the ugly one pixel black border.
