Custom email newsletter not displaying in out look correctly through mailchimp

Hi Experts,

Currently designing an email newsletter for some ads, but for some reason, they are working fine in Gmail and other mail clients, but Outlook does a terrible job and doesnt resize the email to fit the screen like on gmail.  Need help with amending code to get outlook to dispay the email like on gmail.  Using Mailchimp.

Regards,

Kasonde

Outlook uses Microsoft Word to display and edit HTML content.  Word is stuck at about HTML 3.2 and doesn't handle HTML5 well at all.  As you can see in the first two columns on this page https://www.campaignmonitor.com/css/ , there are many things that Outlook does not support.

Mailchimp has this page about design: http://kb.mailchimp.com/campaigns/design/design-for-email   In general because of Outlook using such a simple HTML display, it is recommended that you use old-fashioned table based designs in HTML email.  Modern things like HTML5 are not recognized in Outlook.
