IE and Outlook running at same time give strange reslults

IE - outlook - css

We are working on a website that turns out differently from what was intended when Outlook is running.

When outlook is not running, all css seems to get loaded (the website looks great). When outlook is running, the website's css is not completely executed (or at least it does not show). For instance, background-colors of some elements are shown, of other elements are not shown.

Atm we are rewriting the css files as well as removing the inline style elements (so it might be cache-related?)

Multiple css-files are linked within the head-tag.

Hope someone can tell us where to start searching for a solution.

What versions of the software and operating system are you using? Can you replicate this on more than one machine?

We saw it on a desktop computer of one of our customers, and on a laptop of one of our colleagues. There does not seem to be a common denominator where OS or browser is concerned.

maybe is because the software version you are using, because i dont have issues using ie9 with outlook 2010, neither with ie 8 with outlook 2007.
