Hotmail Background Colour


I hope someone can help! Im at my wits end. Ive built an email that works perfect in everything except it wnt display a BG colour in Hotmail. I've tried every combination I can think of but it wont show.

Can anyone point me in the right direction?

We haven't had problems changing the background in Hotmail generally? Have you tried putting a container div around your content, and giving that a background colour in CSS?
