I had to do an HTML/emailer thing not too long ago and it looks like [Outlook at least] can handle a <style></style> tag set.

When i've made HTML emails I have generally stuck to HTML 3.0 and avoided the use of CSS. Dare i say it - even using simple tables for layout. Apparently support for CSS is improving in email clients, but its a lot of work to take on for what is generally a little return financially.
