Issues with borders in Outlook

I am building an email and am using a right and left border that is the same colour as the background so when the email is viewed on mobile devices and the background doesn’t display, the email still has an edge.

The problem being, when using “border-left: solid 2px #E7EAEC; border-right: solid 2px #E7EAEC;” in certain versions of Outlook, it changes the colour of my border to white, which then shows up against the grey background colour.

Any suggestions?

Hi Serif,

Nice to see you on the forums again smile

Would you be able to post your full code as a .HTML attachment? I’ll see what I can do.
