IE7/Windows Mail Table Spacing issues

This table of images isn't rendering properly in IE7 and below, as well as in Windows Mail. It shows a 1px white/transparent line between the two table rows in both.

As you can tell by the inline styles, I've tried many of the common fixes online, but I'm clearly missing something.

Here's the minified code in use:

<table border=0 cellpadding=0 cellspacing=0 style="border-style:none; border-spacing:0px; border-collapse: collapse; font-size: 0px;"><tr border=0 cellpadding=0 cellspacing=0 style="font-size: 0px;"><img style="border: 0; font-size: 0px;" src="https://www.vacpartswarehouse.com/v/vspfiles/assets/images/Marketing/June2013/dyson-am04-fan-r0c0.jpg" alt="We're giving away a Dyson AM04 fan/heating unit. Enter to win by following us and sharing the info on your social network of choice!" /></tr><tr border=0 cellpadding=0 cellspacing=0 style="font-size: 0px;"><td border=0 cellpadding=0 cellspacing=0 style="font-size: 0px;"><img style="border: 0; font-size: 0px;" src="https://www.vacpartswarehouse.com/v/vspfiles/assets/images/Marketing/June2013/dyson-am04-fan-r1c0.jpg" alt="Visit one of social networks on the right so you can enter now." /></td><td border=0 cellpadding=0 cellspacing=0 style="font-size: 0px;"><a style="border: 0; font-size: 0px;" href="https://plus.google.com/u/0/b/100293871526957695920/100293871526957695920"><img style="border: 0; font-size: 0px;" src="https://www.vacpartswarehouse.com/v/vspfiles/assets/images/Marketing/June2013/dyson-am04-fan-r1c1.jpg" alt="+1 us on Google+" /></a></td><td border=0 cellpadding=0 cellspacing=0 style="font-size: 0px;"><a style="border: 0; font-size: 0px;" href="https://twitter.com/vpwcom"><img style="border: 0; font-size: 0px;" src="https://www.vacpartswarehouse.com/v/vspfiles/assets/images/Marketing/June2013/dyson-am04-fan-r1c2.jpg" alt="Follow us on Twitter" /></a></td><td border=0 cellpadding=0 cellspacing=0 style="font-size: 0px;"><a style="border: 0; font-size: 0px;" href="https://facebook.com/VacPartsWarehouse"><img style="border: 0; font-size: 0px;" src="https://www.vacpartswarehouse.com/v/vspfiles/assets/images/Marketing/June2013/dyson-am04-fan-r1c3.jpg" alt="Like us on Facebook" /></a></td></tr></table>

Here it is formatted for easy reading:

<table border=0 cellpadding=0 cellspacing=0 style="border-style:none; border-spacing:0px; border-collapse: collapse; font-size: 0px;">
	<tr border=0 cellpadding=0 cellspacing=0 style="font-size: 0px;">
		<img style="border: 0; font-size: 0px;" src="https://www.vacpartswarehouse.com/v/vspfiles/assets/images/Marketing/June2013/dyson-am04-fan-r0c0.jpg" alt="We're giving away a Dyson AM04 fan/heating unit. Enter to win by following us and sharing the info on your social network of choice!" />
	</tr>
	<tr border=0 cellpadding=0 cellspacing=0 style="font-size: 0px;">
		<td border=0 cellpadding=0 cellspacing=0 style="font-size: 0px;">
			<img style="border: 0; font-size: 0px;" src="https://www.vacpartswarehouse.com/v/vspfiles/assets/images/Marketing/June2013/dyson-am04-fan-r1c0.jpg" alt="Visit one of social networks on the right so you can enter now." />

I'm sure it's a simple fix, but I'm overlooking it. Alternatively, if you can show a solution which will avoid those problems while using something other than a table, I'm open to that as well.

Is someone paying you to support IE7?  If they are not, I'd let it go because IE7 is used by less than 2% of the users and that is falling.

Yes, they are. And the issue also effects Windows Mail/Outlook Express (this banner is also used in an email campaign), which still has a 15-20% market share as far as I'm aware.

Ok, post a screen shot of both issues.  I have IE7 on one computer still that I can use to take a look the problem.

Sorry for the late reply. The person moved on in their priorities, so as you suggested, I'm moving on as well. Thank you for your willingness to help though.
