Outlook not Removing Spaces from HTML Email

I have created a MailChimp email template to market my business.  The email looks great when I send a test message and view in gmail's webmail, however when I view in outlook, all of the text and headings are spaced one line above the other.  In my template there should be a blank line in between a heading and the paragraph below.

How do I get blank lines to appear when the html email is viewed in Outlook and other email clients, especially gmail?

HTML code attached.

Thanks!

Have a look at this thread, it talks a lot about how styling emails can be a pain and certain techniques that can be used to overcome it.

You may want to start off with validating your html at http://validator.w3.org/. One quick run through produced 36 errors, these errors could be causing outlook to try to compensate when it shouldnt.

Do you know which errors specifically are causing the compensation that's removing my blank lines inbetween paragraphs?  This HTML looks pretty foreign to me.

i don't know if it is specifically interfering with your line break issue, but you should clean them all up as other parts of the html could cause issues in other email clients.
