Hi Everyone, I hope someone has the answer to this query!

I think I have pressed a sequence of keys on my keyboard composing that now causes text formatting characters to be embedded as ASCII symbols, e.g. <CR> , TAB, LF. They are embedded whenever I compose an email. When the recipient receives the email everything appears as normal. When I receive emails everything displays fine it is just the composition of new emails that has the issue. Even spaces between my words display as a small dot.

Does anyone know what I have done and how to rectify it please?

Many thanks

Hi calidore

Welcome to Tech Support Guy Forums!

You may have the paragraph mark enabled (backwards P icon), open a new message and click the paragraph mark to toggle it on and off.




See this link, you may also have Word setup as your e-mail editor.

You may want to disable that feature.


Let us know if that makes a difference or not.
