You aren't going to like my answers but its one of the few ways that I've been able to get html emails the way I want. You have to use inline styles. When the email comes in through outlook view the source of the email and you will likely see some stuff being stripped.

Usually positioning is stripped and many embedded styles are stripped. Why this happens I don't know however because the rendering engine is IE for outlook feeding it a document that is in quirks mode doesn't quite work either because IE shows things funny.

I am not using positioning!
I am using in-line styles!

You are using some but its likely the embedded stylesheet that might get funky but because of a lack of doctype it will render funny.

Outlook is a pain to style emails for. Have a look at the Email Standards Project website for advice:
