View Full Version : Outlook 2007 Table Column Width Issue

05-27-2010, 02:16 PM
I have a table with three cells as a signature for Outlook. However, the third cell occupies a lot more space because it has a lot more text, causing the entire table row to be pushed down, so the other two cells have huge gaps of white space. I'm just trying to have the three cells take up equal vertical space, no matter how far the width of the third cell needs to be expanded to:

#wrapper {
border-top: 2px solid #6f9045;
border-bottom: 2px solid #6f9045;

#secondwrapper {
border-top: 2px solid #c9d9b4;
border-bottom: 2px solid #c9d9b4;

table {
width: 74%; /* Even when using pixels, it still gave same problem*/
border-collapse: collapse;

font: normal normal normal .8em/1.5 'Optima', Verdana, Arial, sans-serif;
color: #254117;
td {
border-right: 1px dotted #9bb09e;
padding: 10px 0 10px 20px;
vertical-align: text-top;
td.border-absent {
border-right: none;
min-width: 200px;
