Gmail breaks layout if download images later
I created an email a basic template in Mailchimp, made a few tweaks and implemented the template on our platform. There's (of course) issues with outlook and fonts, but - more surprisingly - I have an issue with image download in Gmail:
In Gmail, when images aren't automatically downloaded, the email layout looks fine before accepting images, but after downloading them the layout is messed up: table widths aren't applied and also cell background colours are not in place. Please see screenshots below.
Anybody has experienced this before? Any clues as to why this might happen?
