Outlook 2007 BG Color not extending all the way

I am hoping someone can help me here with an issue that I am having with Outlook 2007.

I have designed my email and set the background color in the body tag.  The problem is that Outlook isn't extending the color to the edge of the windows, resulting in an annoying white border around the edge of the window. 

I have the margins set to 0 in the body tag, but that isn't working.

Any insight from someone would be greatly appreciated.

What happens if you put a border on the body? Is the gap there still?

I am having a similar problem. I am left with a white box top and bottom in a table cell. The cell was an empty table cell with background colour. I tried to fill it with a spacer.gif but no joy. Margins and padding all set to 0. There is however a background image which is dropped in Outlook 2007 hence the back colour.
