Outlook 2007: CSS borders inconsistent in html email

Hi,
I added a top dashed border to several <p> tags in an html email. Some of those borders display in Outlook 2007 and some do not. This is not an issue in other email clients. You will find the html is contained in the product spotlight table in the bottom half of the html. <!--BEGIN product spotlight table-->

PLEASE note: most of the <a href> tags will not work because they contain a [REDIRECTURL] tag and do not include the "http://". This is deliberate because these anchors will be rendered in a program called i2eds. These tags do not affect borders.

The file is at http://www.districtadministration.com/mailing/issue_alerts/issue_alert_5_09.html but I have also embeded the code in this post. I really hope someone has a  solution for me because I have been searching all afternoon and need to resolve by tomorrow morning.
Thanks in advance

Sharon

            <p style="font-family:Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif; font-size:12px;">Dear Readers,</p>
            <p style="font-family:Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif; font-size:12px;line-height:20px;">Higher education is jumping in the social media pool in a big way. A recent poll by the social media site DIOSA showed that 87 percent of respondents said their institution had a Facebook page. Small wonder then that institutions such as Webster University, American University, and the University of Maryland at College Park, among others, are using social media to reach out to students, faculty and the public. <a style="color:#06315B; font-weight:bold;" href="[REDIRECTURL]www.universitybusiness.com/viewarticle.aspx?articleid=1289">Five Steps to Developing a Powerful Social Networking Strategy</a>, by Fritz McDonald, takes a look at how colleges and universities can create web communities to build relationships of value with their most important constituents.</p>
            <p style="font-family:Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif; font-size:12px;line-height:20px;">In an increasingly litigious society, colleges and universities are open to risks from all corners. Identifying the major risks that might lurk around campus&mdash;such as a broken sprinkler system in a residence hall&mdash;and then fixing them is the first step in mitigating risk. In <a style="color:#06315B; font-weight:bold;" href="[REDIRECTURL]www.universitybusiness.com/viewarticle.aspx?articleid=1288">Manageable Risk</a>, Susan Gurevitz explains how an Enterprise Risk Management policy takes a holistic, comprehensive, organization-wide approach to identifying, mitigating, and&mdash;when necessary&mdash;responding to risk situations.</p>
            <p style="font-family:Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif; font-size:12px;line-height:20px;">With today's uncertain economic picture, standardization is one way an institution can get a handle on technology expenditures, while improving the user experience. In <a style="color:#06315B; font-weight:bold;" href="[REDIRECTURL]www.universitybusiness.com/viewarticle.aspx?articleid=1287">Setting the Standard</a>, Michele Herrmann tells how CIOs around the country are cutting costs, reducing maintenance issues, and &quot;driving down complexity&quot; with hardware and software that integrates easily.</p>

Hey Sharon,
I have literally just ran into the same problem.
Outlook 2007 strips off everything from inside your head tag which means that no style instruction will get through. After a bit of research and help from this forum I discovered an alternate method for styling emailed html.

Take a look at how I embedded the style info into the newsletter shown bellow. Hope you can use this info to re create yours. Good luck

Hi Neil.
Thanks for responding. I don't know where I went wrong and was hoping someone could point out specific code that should be changed or added.

Try this,
I have embeded a coston class called "dash" withinh the body tag so it is read bu outlook 7. I have removed your style info relating to the dash and applied the cistom cklass to the appropriate p tags.
Hope this helps.

            <p style="font-family:Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif; font-size:12px;">Dear Readers,</p>
            <p style="font-family:Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif; font-size:12px;line-height:20px;">Higher education is jumping in the social media pool in a big way. A recent poll by the social media site DIOSA showed that 87 percent of respondents said their institution had a Facebook page. Small wonder then that institutions such as Webster University, American University, and the University of Maryland at College Park, among others, are using social media to reach out to students, faculty and the public. <a style="color:#06315B; font-weight:bold;" href="[REDIRECTURL]www.universitybusiness.com/viewarticle.aspx?articleid=1289">Five Steps to Developing a Powerful Social Networking Strategy</a>, by Fritz McDonald, takes a look at how colleges and universities can create web communities to build relationships of value with their most important constituents.</p>
            <p style="font-family:Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif; font-size:12px;line-height:20px;">In an increasingly litigious society, colleges and universities are open to risks from all corners. Identifying the major risks that might lurk around campus&mdash;such as a broken sprinkler system in a residence hall&mdash;and then fixing them is the first step in mitigating risk. In <a style="color:#06315B; font-weight:bold;" href="[REDIRECTURL]www.universitybusiness.com/viewarticle.aspx?articleid=1288">Manageable Risk</a>, Susan Gurevitz explains how an Enterprise Risk Management policy takes a holistic, comprehensive, organization-wide approach to identifying, mitigating, and&mdash;when necessary&mdash;responding to risk situations.</p>
            <p style="font-family:Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif; font-size:12px;line-height:20px;">With today's uncertain economic picture, standardization is one way an institution can get a handle on technology expenditures, while improving the user experience. In <a style="color:#06315B; font-weight:bold;" href="[REDIRECTURL]www.universitybusiness.com/viewarticle.aspx?articleid=1287">Setting the Standard</a>, Michele Herrmann tells how CIOs around the country are cutting costs, reducing maintenance issues, and &quot;driving down complexity&quot; with hardware and software that integrates easily.</p>

Hi Bradley,

Thanks again for your input and I apologize for taking so long to get back to you. I decided to forget about the issue in Outlook and keep as is.

You embedded the dash style in the email and that might work in some email clients, but what I have read shows that some don't recognize embedded styles. Has that changed?

Anyways, thanks for the input.
Sharon

Hi,

I have read somewhere on the internet. Somehow this could help your css problem.
Have u tried to add: "border-collapse: collapse" inside your <td> tag?

Greet, N.
