Right now I'm using HTML 4.0.1 transitional in my templates, but I was wondering whether another Doctype should be more helpful in rendering correctly across e-mail clients?

I've seen doctypes removing weird spacer-bugs in Outlook at least.

Sorry for the bumb. Should I take it as Doctypes have little, or no effect in e-mail clients?

I was under the impression that anything within the HEAD tags gets removed, unless viewed in a browser. CM's just smart enough to adopt the stylesheet into inline CSS :)
