First issue is that the @import for google fonts isn't supported by mailchimp, but I was able to use this trick to fix it: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/1438 … p-template" class="bb-url"> http://stackoverflow.com/questions/1438 … p-template.
The major issue is that the emails look horrible when they are sent/received by mailchimp. I think mailchimp is trying to correct code that RED produces resulting in a broken email.
I attached the file I'm having issues with.

Partial screenshot from Gmail/Chrome:
Mailchimp is supposed to support web fonts but right now it seems it works on some accounts, and not on others. We tested it with 3 accounts, and 1 imports them properly (Scotts account ).
They talk about their support for web fonts here http://templates.mailchimp.com/design/typography/ and we are using the same import code. Best seems to contact them regarding this issue.
Until the figure out the issue you can use web safe fonts in RED (maybe Arial which you use as fallback) or simply strip that piece of @import code from the export. As to how the email looks when saved or sent (without web font), this is perfect and exactly as designed in RED. If any code is changed, or if the email is displayed differently, it probably has to do with the 'hack' you found and added.
Please let us know what they say regarding the google fonts issue and if the email saves and sends correctly without using google fonts applied.
