Formatting is correct in some email clients, not all and in the browser view, is all messed up


Formatting is correct in some email clients, not all and in the browser view, is all messed up



I have a campaign I would like to send out. It looks fine on CC, but when I test the email, the formatting is messed up. It looks ok in my email client, but the other people I send it to as a test (who presumably have different clients or older clients) can not see some of the pictures and some of them see only text and no pictures. I feel like this could be an issue with different email clients and what they do and do not support, but I am not sure. I am using Outlook 2016. I think some of the people I send it to are using Outlook 2013 and I am not sure about some of the others. We have been testing the email in the web browser view as well, and the formatting is off. Some of the text is pushed up against the edge of the text box and it is formatted vertically down the page.  It looks funny. How can I resolve these issues?
