I'm having some frustrating issues with a tall email design in Outlook 2007. I had this problem with a previous email, where a tall image was being misaligned in a table cell. The solution was to cut it up into smaller images at the time. I still had no idea why Outlook was chopping the image up by itself, but this seemed to solve it.
Come phase two with an even taller set of images and now after trying many, many solutions, I am finally stumped. My closest rendering option was to nest a table and distribute mostly evenly sized and spaced images. Even now, there are a couple of random gaps where there shouldn't be. Every single other email client tests pretty much perfectly except for the wonderful Word rendering engine in Outlook 2007.
Can anyone suggest why 2007 would be inserting this whitespace seemingly at random?

That pretty much sums up developing HTML emails for OL2007 ;)
When I had this problem in OL2007 it was because OL2007 was giving td elements that only contained an image a font-size. So each td could only shrink to a minimum size hence the blank gaps.
You can probably fix it by adding the following inline style to all tds that only contain images:
If that alone doesn't resolve it, try adding
line-height:0; to it as well
I can't exactly point out what the incompatibilities are, but there are many NO-NOs for Outlook 2007. One of which is "background images" do not work, and you have some in your email HTML.
