Spam Test Fail on Outlook 2003 & 2007 using CM Template?

I've customised Template 2 (Left Sidebar) for a client and merely tweaked some of the css, but it's failing the spam tests for Outlook 2003 & 2007 - but no info on why. This is putting my client off the platform as this is the first one he is going to send.

Can anyone offer any pointers - the web version here.

Do i have to pay for spam tests for every change I make until it passes? That could prove expensive unless I'm doing something obviously wrong. Help appreciated.

If you're sending enough campaigns to justify it, you could always sign up with LitmusApp.  $50 per month for unlimited e-mail testing, and they're one of the companies CM utilizes.

Things in your document that may have caused the spam flags:
Gentleman, Christmas, any form of pricing, the word price, male, rewards, discount... you get the idea.

Brian thanks for flagging those content issues for me. It's a minefield out there. I use Litmus already  for web pages so I'lll give it a spin.
