Outlook 07 & 10 are the only clients showing this error. Seems to be placing a blank space the same width and height as the image placed below it. Has happened in a couple different mailings, so it is not independent to one set of code.

Here is the code for the table the issue is in, attached is all the code for the template.

<table width=“365” border=“0” align=“center” cellpadding=“0” cellspacing=“0” style=“border-collapse:collapse;background-color:#ffffff;” class=“table2”>
