Outlook 2007 Issue

I'm having problems with a design in Outlook 2007. The email can be found here:
http://www.shannons.com.au/pages/auction-enews/ShannonsEnews4/index.html

A screenshot of the problems can be found here:
http://www.shannons.com.au/pages/auction-enews/ShannonsEnews4/images/outlook2007.jpg
http://www.shannons.com.au/pages/auction-enews/ShannonsEnews4/images/breaksissue.jpg

So in Outlook 2007 a large white panel appears towards the bottom of the email. And in several other emails white breaks are appearing between the images in the right panel.

Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

It looks like your missing a few tags in your code somewhere and looks like your missing:

x2 </TR>
x1 </TD>

I'd also advise you add:

img { display: block; }

This should fix your issues with images locked in together, which in your case is a lot.

Let me know if you need further assistance.

> The numbers in the tables don't add up.
> It's best to use nested tables rather than using any colspans or rowspans.
> Images must remain their original size - Outlook 2007 and several other e-mail clients will not resize the image based on what you specify in your HTML

I'll throw some code up shortly, but some images may need to be adjusted on your end to cover the gaps. (The side images)

Give this a try instead.

It removes the need to have images surrounding all your different sections.

All you need to do is adjust the images on either side of the document to match the exact height you want.

Thanks so much that is a huge help. Although still running into an issue with Outlook '07, I have made those side images quite long to allow for different text spacing in emails (http://www.shannons.com.au/pages/auction-enews/ShannonsEnews4/index.html) but still seem to run into trouble at the bottom of the email in outlook (http://www.shannons.com.au/pages/auction-enews/ShannonsEnews4/images/outlook.jpg). Do I still need to make them longer? Starts looking a bit strange in emails where the content is shorter though.

Thanks again

Looks like the line spacing in Outlook 2007 is making the page so long that the side images are not long enough.

Where the side images end is where Outlook '07 is causing the break.

I'll make some adjustments to the code and advise.


Edit:  Okay, so it's not the line spacing.  Still working on it.

I'm thinking that the level of table design is too much for Microsoft's "supreme" email client to handle.

In other words, Microsoft rides the fail-bus, and Outlook 2007 is the driver.

I'm at a loss on what is causing the break.  I've tested removing sections, images, tables, etc., and nothing seems to fix the issue except removing the side images altogether.  This would indicate something in the center columns is causing the break.  Unfortunately the testing company I use has gone down for the evening, so I'm unable to test any further adjustments.

I'll try to take a look again when I have more time.

Thanks Brian, I really appreciate your help!

No luck.  Tried so many configurations my brain is drained.

That's ok! Thank you so much for your time and effort!  I think I will go with removing the side panels and leaving a plain white border to combat the problem. Outlook 2007 wins this one. Thanks again.

BThies BThies, 6 years ago

Okay so here's the issue:

Due to the rendering engine of Outlook 2007 (Word 2007), the e-mail client naturally creates breaks in the document which normally go with the flow of the document.  HOWEVER, if an image just happens to be sitting at the breaking point, it causes the dreaded white space.  I'd like to guess it's somewhere around 1750px-1800px, but I could be wrong.

Now normally I'd just say "no problem, I'll split the image where the break occurs and use two images for each side".  Unfortunately OL'07 is unforgiving, and will still create a wide gap between the new side images and the old side images.  (Which looks just like a header/footer break in Word '07).

Stay tuned - I may have a great fix for this document!  :-)

65 tests later, the only solution is to recreate the gradient effect on either side using tables.

No side images required, so it's fluid.  Here you go:

Hi Brian. Wow! Thank you so much! I haven't been in the forums for a while, and just saw your fantastic solution. Thank you so much for your help, greatly appreciated!

Thank you all for the great advice it was able to sort out my image spacing issues. Defining border on all my images got rid of all the spacing.

I have one small thing to add to the list of issues and ways to resolve them. A while back I had a problem where I had a white bar appearing at the top of a <td>. The <td> had nothing in it except for a background-color. The row in the middle had text in it with padding-top of 15.

<tr>
<td style=''background-color: #123456;"> </td>
<td style=''padding-top:15;"> My body Copy </td>
<td style=''background-color: #123456;"> </td>
</tr>

I know padding is not fully supported in Outlook 2007. Not know this I persevered and managed to resolve the issue by adding padding to the left and right columns. This got rid of the white space all together.
