1. How to fix vertical spacing between my image in Thunderbird?

This question has a simple answer: no.

If you have an align attribute set to "right" or "left" within an image, Thunderbird will add a 3 pixel margin to your image.

Align=”right” adds a 3px margin to the image's left.
Align=”left” adds a 3px margin to the image's right.

This is especially important of you are trying to get images to stack up neatly within a table.

Remove the alignment or add a CSS margin of "0" to fix the spacing.

As an example:

<img src="http://www.test.jpg" align="right" style="margin:0"
