Post subject:  NMS Template not working in Outlook 2016

I trying to build a nms template and started with the code below :

\$1:
<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">
<__html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">
   <head>
      <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=UTF-8" />
      <title>Infowebs Email Design</title>
   <meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1.0"/>
</head>

   </__body>
      <table>
         <tr>
            <td>
               Header
            </td>
         </tr>
         <tr>
            <td style="background-image:url('https://lc.infowebs.nl/images/newsletter/lcbg.png');">
               Banner
            </td>
         </tr>
         <tr>
            <td>
               Body
            </td>
         </tr>
         <tr>
            <td>
               Footer
            </td>
         </tr>
      </table>
</__html>


This works in the webclient Roundcube, but in Outlook 2016 there is now background.

Does anyone know why Outlook 2016 is not showing the background ?

I don't think Outlook supports background images in tables, but if you Google for the issue you'll find various workaround methods or alternatives.

Thank you DIGI3

I found that Outlook is really a difficult mail client to create html templates for. (Again Microsoft, and I say that as a Certified Microsoft specialist). I think I'm gonna say to my client(s) that if they want/need a special template in NMS I need to buy one from a professional e-mail template creator.

Thank you again DIGI3 for your quick reply.
