Does Outlook 2007 default font override all CSS?


An example:

For some reason all paragraphs are use Times but headings correctly use Arial. According to font-family is supported in Outlook 2007.

Do all paragaphs use Times in Outlook 2007 no matter what the CSS declarations are?

Thanks for your help

Hi jknuutila,

I don't think it behaves like this. Inline styles should definitely work so when importing you're campaign make sure to bring styles inline:

Let me know if you run into any further issues.

Attaching CSS is never a good idea.

Code it inline from the beginning, and you'll never have an issue.

just a hint.... online systems such as hotmail etc have their own stylesheet for links.. you need to override it with your own color if you want your links to appear as per your design
