For at least 5 years now, Outlook's formatting of new messages has irritated me. By default it sets paragraph spacing to "Auto" (both before and after) which results in whitespace equal to a full line between each paragraph. Many posts on the web claim that one can control Outlook's default format in new messages through its "Normal" style, but this is *not* the case. My "Normal" style in Outlook has paragraph spacing set to "0 pt" before and after, and changes what I have writeen in new messages accordingly when I apply it. How can I get Outlook to respect my wishes for default message format?
