Hi all,

Wondering if anyone can help me as I’m going crazy trying to fix this!

I’ve created an HTML email which renders perfectly in all browsers, however, when i send it in Outlook 2010, large horizontal gaps are appearing between table data where there is a colspan.

Does any one know how to fix this?

Here’s the bit of code that’s causing the issues:

  <tr>
      <td>images/01.jpg</td>
      <td colspan=“4” style=“background-color:#fff; padding: 0 10px;”>TEXT HERE</td>
      <td>images/02.jpg</td>
  </tr>

Thanks,

Andy

Just to note, the images in the first and last TD have width, height and border 0 attached.
