Ive been having a problem with my text changing after I have copied and pasted into an email. It looks fine until after I send the email and check my sent mail, fonts have changed, symbols and characters have been added, line spacing has changed. Whats the problem?

We need more info than that.
Examples, system details, files, even screen captures would help.

It might be system settings, it might be mail tool settings, it might be outgoing mail format problems, it might be mail server problems, it might be Someone just hates you.

The most common thing I know of is that a font is used in creating the text body that is subsequently unavailable to the email program so it falls back on a default font and size, which usually changes everything. Now if you're using New Times Roman to construct and that's getting changed after sending then its probably something else (plain text vs. HTML maybe).

Its not something quite as simple as that. After the paste, it changed 1 single word (and the same word each time) to a font size of 1,683 and added a couple symbols (&%=) to a couple other words.

Have you tested with another document with just the word that was changed and the ones appended with symbols? Trying to see if its the words themselves, how they appear in the document or somehing else. There are some glitches in word programs sometimes, one in Wordpad that when you enter a certain phrase in a new file and save it and open it, it displays as four vertical rectangles where the phrase is supposed to be. So things like this are not unheard of.
