Change line spacing in e-mail messages

Applies to
Microsoft Office Outlook® 2003
Microsoft Outlook® 2002

This feature requires you to be using Microsoft Word as your e-mail editor. Also, line spacing cannot be configured for plain text messages.

When you compose an e-mail message in Outlook, you can change the spacing between the lines and the spacing before or after each paragraph.

ShowChange line spacing

  1. Select the text you want to change.
  2. On the Format menu, click Paragraph, and then select the options you want under Spacing.

 Notes 

ShowChange spacing before or after paragraphs

  1. Select the paragraphs in which you want to change spacing.
  2. On the Format menu, click Paragraph, and then under Spacing, enter the spacing you want in the Before or After box.

 Note    If you only see options for Alignment (Left, Center, Right), and a check box for Bullets, you are not using Word as your e-mail editor. Word is required to change paragraph spacing.
