So here is my code:

<td height="10" bgcolor="#422c13" style="background-color:#422c13;height:10px;font-size:1px;line-height:0; -webkit-text-size-adjust:none;"><font style="display:none;">&nbsp;</font></td>

This should display a row with a height of 10px with a brownish background color.

In Outlook 2016 you see this:
Outlook2016 That white bar is my code that is having the background color ignored...

In every other email client around your see this:
Other Email Clients No white bar.

Why is Outlook 2016 refusing to display the background color?

Any help greatly appreaciated!!!
