No Fix

Summary
Text alignment designated in the Content Builder editor is not being honored when the message is rendered in some versions of Outlook (2013 and 2016). When the align toolbar option is used in the Content Builder, it uses the "float: right" style. Some versions of Outlook are not processing this, and look specifically for 'align="right" ' style.

Repro
1) Create Free Form Content Block in Content builder Email
2) Insert Image and Text
3) Use the align button in the tool bar to apply styling.
4) Send your test email. When opening, the text will wrap around the image in the majority of mail clients as expected, but not Outlook 2013 & 2016.

Workaround
Manually edit the HTML of your message to use 'align=' style instead of 'float:'
