Zimbra showing only mobile format

We use @media queries to format our outgoing emails so they display either 660px wide, or 320px wide for mobile. We tested everything in Email on Acid and they all looked great, even in Zimbra which we use in our office network. However, two days ago we updated Zimbra, and now it displays our emails only in mobile size and poorly formatted. All other email clients aren’t having this problem, but since Email on Acid doesn’t test for Zimbra, we have to send our test emails to ourselves. Anyone have any ideas what suddenly changed in Zimbra or what may be causing the distortions?

After further testing, I see the problem is that Zimbra is ignoring our @media styles. I specify the 660px wide first, which applies to Desktop and Tablets, then use an @media screen (max-width: 600px) { to specify Mobile screen dimensions. Zimbra is ignoring the @media style, which means the Mobile specs will override the Desktop and Tablet specs. Any suggestions on how to overcome this problem?
