We have a Windows 8.1 Lenovo running Outlook 2013.  Text emails received look fine, but HTML emails - probably with tables - are squished into the center of the email (see attached).  I use Outlook 2013 on a Windows 7 machine and the HTML emails look fine.

Any ideas on fixing this is greatly appreciated.

I discovered that the problem is in how the emails are formatted.  A wrapper table is needed with the style command setting the width...

<table align="center" style="width:600px;">

Then each sub-table needs to have the width set at 100%...

<td width="100%">

This happens with Outlook 2013 on Windows 8.  (I didn't test Outlook 2010 on Windows 8)
