Page Background Color for Hotmail

A recent change to the way Hotmail renders email HTML is that it now ignores an outer table with a width of 100%.  This attribute is often used to achieve a page background color behind your email.  While you could set an absolute width on this table (e.g. 750 pixels), this will cause other email clients to force users to scroll horizontally.  A better solution is to add the CSS below, which will restore the ability to add a width of 100%.

<STYLE type="text/css">
.ReadMsgBody
{width: 100%;}
.ExternalClass
{width: 100%;}
</STYLE>
