Text appearing various shades of grey in different email clients.

We are currently testing our newsletter through Campaign Monitor (manually), however in some email clients (Lycos and if I forward it from from hotmail account), the email is showing text in various colours (black or grey).

I can't work out what is going on.

Just had a thought as I am typing this, that it may be to do with the fact that Campaign Monitor is converting my css to inline, however there may be a conflicting colour.  If this is the case, is there a way of seeing the html created by Campaign Monitor showing the converted inline html?

Thanks in advanced.

Sure Bec,

If you just send the campaign to yourself, you can (in most email client) view the HTML source and see what you are getting.

You will also see it in the preview in Campaign Monitor after you've imported it / set it up.
