I created a new email using the new email editor 2.0 - after sending some tests to myself and a colleague (and then raising a case) we discovered that there are some areas of code not supported by Outlook e.g. border-spacing, display, float...
Does anyone know of any starter email templates that are supported by Outlook and will look alright? I'm trying to send a newsletter type email and used Snowbunny......
Please use litmus to test them or clone the templates and update them to comply with Outlook's quirks.
You can check the solutions provided by Marketo partners on Launchpoint for creating responsive emails that are tested across all devices.
Just FYI - these templates will be updated continuously and we do test them across all devices.
There is an update to every single "Starter Template" that will be launched inside of Marketo in the Template Picker in a matter of days. Here are the Litmus renderings. You'll see many things have been addressed:

Hi Justin! I'm using the corrected HTML templates, but my header logo is still skewing and pushing the link down, even after adjusting the dimensions. Any ideas?
So, I've found in that template that if the aspect ratio is such that the logo is much much wider than tall (doesn't matter the resolution, just proportions) then the header won't look great. I'll see if we can make some tweaks to handle really wide images better. If you use closer to a 3:1 aspect ratio it should work much better. For example this image I used is 2500x1000 (2.5:1):
