Messages are Double Spaced for the Recipient | Slipstick Systems:

Edit the Template

In Outlook 2007:

Close Outlook. (If you get a message that the template is read only, Outlook is not closed.) Locate NormalEmail.dotm and open it for editing. You'll find it in the templates folder at C:\Users\username\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Templates (Vista), To easily access this folder in Windows XP or Vista, paste


in the Start search dialog (Vista) or the address bar of Windows Explorer.

  1. Right click on NormalEmail.dotm and choose Open. This will open the template in Word as a template.
  2. Right click on the Normal style button in the ribbon and chose Modify.
  3. Click Format in the lower left and choose Paragraph.
  4. In the Spacing section, change the After value to 12 points.
  5. Save and close the template.

Now when you write a new message you'll press enter once and have white space when recipients read the message in any client or web browser. Replies will use the style sheet of the original message.
