Sending an email with images (HTML) on a free email account seems to space out the images, even though there should not be!

Please see images to understand what I mean.

When I am sending with a recieving with a free email account, like hotmail, gmail, etc, when I position an image RIGHT below another image, they always seem to have a space between them. I can send the same email to a general email account (non free), and it works fine.

A simple test is sending this to a hotmail account:

<img src="http://img29.imageshack.us/img29/1986/image1kwq.png"><br><img src="http://img198.imageshack.us/img198/7645/image2dz.png">

And you'll get the space in between the images like I have, but only in a free style account.  The wierd thing is you can COMPOSE the message inside hotmail, and it looks fine, and then send it, and it gets ruined by the space. Am I missing something that hotmail/etc requires to remove those spaces in my HTML?

I'll attach an example, the left is the composing, the right is the result after its sent and I am viewing it. Maybe some CSS is required? etc?

Any suggestions?

This page http://www.campaignmonitor.com/css/ shows how varied the support for CSS is in different email clients.  In addition, Gmail, Yahoo, and Hotmail rewrite the email to protect the code that displays the page.  All you can do is try different things until something works on all of them.  But it can be frustrating.
