HTML Email in Outlook

On sending html email in outlook, the table border renders as very thin when compared to browser
We are using the below line of code in html
<table style="float:left;border:30px solid #d4e9e2;"><tbody><tr><td>

but the border got rendered with very small thickness, even if the value of border is increased from 30px to 50/60.
How can I increase the border so that it should look same as in browser.

Hi @ManjuMadhusoodhanannairUSTIN-5847 ,

Welcome to our forum!

Do you want to increase the table border in Outlook desktop client?

If so, as I know, we can select the whole table>right click it and click Table Properties>Borders and Sharing…>in Borders tab, adjust parameters in the Width drop-down box.

Testing within WordHTML, it appears you can only specify a border for a table up to 7px.

Also note that a float isn't supported at all.

Additionally see; Word 2007 HTML and CSS Rendering Capabilities in Outlook 2007 (Part 1 of 2)
It's old, but (sadly) still applies for the most part.
