HTML Emails Busting Up - Macromedia Dynamic HTML

I really need help with trying to figure out how to make images, tables and text stay together. It seems that when I create an HTML page and use it as an email (Newsletter) it breaks apart. For example it works in MS Office 2003 except when forwarding it. In the new MS Office 2007 Outlook my HTML email doesn't look anything like what I created. What am I doing wrong when developing web pages? Thank you....

    I am dealing w/ the same. Most issues w/ layouts in Outlook 2007 are because
    Outlook 2007 uses Word rather than IE to render CSS and others. I am designing
    e-mail layout w/ all style tags in that pages code. Seems like 2007 does not
    like external CSS references, or animated GIF's.

    You will have problems with more than Outlook if you are using CSS without
    taking a couple of precautions -

    1. The CSS MUST be embedded between <body> and </body>, not in its normal
    <head> region location - email clients *don't* do <head> stuff.
    2. The CSS is better done with inline styles than with embedded styles.

    Have you done those things?

    Even then, you will still see problems with GMail, Yahoo, AOL, Notes, and
    other email clients....
