    I am using Outlook 2003 and Word as my mail editor. My outgoing mail is set for paragraph line spacing as Single with 0 pts before and after. Occasionally when someone replies there is an extra blank line after every paragraph. When I click on the show/hide button in the email window, I see that an extra line is added after every paragraph where I have hit the Enter key for "carriage return (CR)". There is one paragraph symbol and then a blank line without a paragraph symbol. The double space replied emails are in HTML format. (When someone using Outlook replies to my emails, this double spacing does not happen. What email readers cause this problem. I would like to avoid using them. I am considering getting a Mac and using Apple Mail 4.0 on this machine and hope Apple Mail does not double space paragraphs.

    It's an HMTL artifact - HTML treats Enter as a paragraph break
    Code:
    
    
    and displays it as a two line break; conversions of HTML to plain text will also convert it to two CRLFs. For a single line break, HTML use Shift-Enter instead of Enter.

    I have no idea if a Mac environment will solve this problem; but I wouldn't expect it to.

    In Outlook right-click in the message text and select "View Source" (not sure if that works with Word as editor in Outlook 2003).
