I have been playing with one of your premade templates trying to make it into a one column, two column 40/60 width, one column and I am not getting the 40/60 results in Outlook or Gmail. Ideas?

Thanks for posting!

This was caused by using a 265px placeholder image. If you add width style and attribute to it, you’ll see the email as expected.

<img alt="" src="" width="200" style="border-width:0px;width:200px;" />
img alt="" src="" width="320" style="border-width:0px;width:320px;" />

Hope that helps!
