Lotus notes display problems

Hi everyone,

I've created an email signature (see full code below) and it works nearly perfectly in all email clients except for Lotus Notes where it's putting a thick black border around one of the td elements even though I've specified border="0". The following is the code for the element that's being affected:

<tr>
  <td width="450" height="40" valign="middle" bgcolor="#ffffff" border="0" bordercolor="#ffffff"  style="text-align:left; margin: 0; padding-bottom: 5px border-bottom: 1px solid #999999;"><img src="http://www.officelinkonline.com.au/kcount/test.jpg" alt="<<Logo>>" width="160" height="30" /></td>
  </tr>

Also, even though I've specified the font-family and size in the td element below, in Lotus notes it's displaying the text in this cell larger and therefore the web address is being pushed onto the following line because it won't fit in the fixed width cell.

<td width="450" valign="top" style="font-family: Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: 11px; text-align:left; color:#666666; margin: 0 !important; padding-top: 5px; line-height: 19px;">Unit 20  2a Sample Street Suburb New South Wales 3000 Australia<br />
    <span style="color: #000; font-weight:bold">T: </span>+61 3 9512 0023 <span style="color: #e5ae51; font-weight:bold">&nbsp;|&nbsp;</span> <span style="color: #000; font-weight:bold">F:</span> +61 3 9513 4342  <span style="color: #e5ae51; font-weight:bold">&nbsp;|&nbsp;</span> <span style="color: #000; font-weight:bold">W:</span> <a href="http://www.newsite.net.au" style="color: #666666; text-decoration: none;">www.putnewsite.net.au</a><br />
    <br />

Does anyone know why this is happening and if there's a workaround?

Have been searching for answers to these issues for ages now and would really appreciate any help offered.

Thanks so much.

Hi all,

I just wanted to add that these lotus notes issues are only occurring because the email is being sent from Outlook 2003 or 2007. If the same email is sent from say Apple Mail or even Windows Mail the problems don't appear.

Does anyone know if there's any workaround.

The person I'm creating the signature for uses these programs so I don't have any other options.

I'm really running out of time here and have looked everywhere for help. Can you some give me any clues at all?
