Outlook bug and how to fix gaps under images

Ranging from business compliance with the performance of Outlook itself there are a lot of reasons why in the modern world a company needs to start looking for a successful Outlook email archiving solution.

Research indicates that the average worker can spend around 90 minutes of every workday managing their mailboxes and executing archiving and information management tasks. This leads to loss of productivity to the entire business. Apart from the productivity problems most Exchange servers are just set to backup information once per day, meaning that any emails which have been deleted through the course of a day aren't archived this can also be stated to the auto-archiving feature that Outlook has. Also because of the way that the auto-archive feature works, finding a specific email that has been archived are incredibly laborious and time-consuming.

The feature of Outlook

When an image doesn't have any connection, Outlook.com makes it clickable to show a picture рrеvіеw оvеrlау. Frоm thіs оvеrlау, уоu саn slіdе thrоugh аll оthеr pictures from this email.

I am sure this is a wonderful feature if you should get an email with family photos. And this kind of feature isn't new in the webmail world. It's akin to Yahoo Rich Link Previews or Gmail's download picture icons.

Unfortunately, Microsoft's implementation of the feature is about as bad as it could have gotten.

The bugs of Outlook

If you're stacking images on top of one another, you may have noticed that Outlook 2013 is adding horizontal spaces between the pictures. Similar to the image divide, this awkward change alters the look of your email and triggers rendering problems galore.

Fоrtunаtеlу, there's a workaround for images too -- apply style=" line-height: Npx" into the table cell that homes that picture. You just have to make certain the line height is the same as the height of the image.
