HTML Email 100% Header

Is it ok to make a header of my HTML email 100%? Or is it better to make the width something like 550px? I basically wanted to have a coloured bar on the top stretch to fill the users Outlook window horizontally...

100% width would probably work, but typically people design HTML emails to be quite narrow since the email reading area is often quite small.

99% would work as well and account for some discrepancies between the different email clients.

Yes, 99% will probably cause less problems overall, I agree
