Background image in GMail is all jacked up!

My background image is aligned to the left when I send myself a test in GMail. It is centered in my Outlook test.

Here is a GMail screen shot. http://www.workplaceelements.com/email/2012/Feb/gmail.jpg

Here is my css: http://www.workplaceelements.com/email/2012/Feb/email-code.txt

I'm really stumped. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!

Hi Kitzmillermedia, the issue is that Gmail doesn't support background-position in your css. That's why the background image is aligned left instead.

What I'd recommend is applying the background image to a center-aligned, fixed-width table, then nesting your content in that. Good luck with your campaign! :D
