    Except it won’t retain those settings for a new message, even if selecting “Set as Default.” Why did M$ have to #^&% this up?

    I found another tip that said change it under Styles, Change style paragraph spacing? save as default.

    I have lots of issues with emails from other regions having lots of space between lines. I fix it by editing the email, then checking ‘Don’t add space between paragraphs of the same style’. I don’t fully understand it as the paragraphs should surely only have 1 line of spaving anyway, but this works. I select all, then apply this.
