MS Outlook 2010, 2 questions, 1 about pasting and 1 about sending

Not open for further replies.


I am fairly new to using MS Outlook 2010. (Details: Microsoft Office Professional Plus 2010, Outlook version 14.0.4760.1000 32-bit; I'm using it under Windows 7 Professional on an Intel 64-bit machine).

I create some reports on a system that gives them to me in plain text. I paste these into the body of my Outlook message as a report. No problem, I use Courier New font, so everything is fixed-width, and paste them as just text. However, I send the email as HTML.

Problem 1: Whenever I paste more than one line, everything after the first line is pasted in with a slight indent. This is a little annoying, but I can easily correct it by selecting everything and formatting the paragraph, and settingf the indent to 0. Is there any way to stop this behavior so I don't have to keep correcting it?

Problem 2: This is more annoying. Many of my lines in the report section and even in my own typing are indented by beginning them with leading spaces. With a fixed-width font, it is easy to do your own paragraph/table/outline indents, simply by putting spaces at the beginning of the line. But after I send, in most places, a first space is removed from every line of the email. I'm not sure if it is removing this from every line that begins with a space or just most of them. If a line begins with n spaces, only the first space is removed, so it now begins with (n-1) spaces when my report is received by others. IT makes it look like I messed up the alignment! Any ideas on this?
