I am trying to have a div with a dotted border surround a table and for some reason the right side is not showing up in Outlook 2007/2010/2013:

These are my tests that I ran:

Here is the email:

Does anyone have any ideas on what might be happening?

Thanks in advance!

What a strange problem! I tested and recreated this. Try as I might, I couldn’t get the border to appear on the right side.

The only solution I found was to add your dotted border to he left side of the next TD, the one with 17 width, on line 504 or so. This did make the margin between the dotted line and the box inside it a little larger on the right side, but it’s not very noticeable. Hope this helps!

Thanks, Geoff!  It definitely was a strange occurrence! I will give the border in the td a try.
