I have the oddest problem that receivers of my email messages have told me about.

I'm using Outlook Express 6 on Windows XP Professional fully updated.

When I create an email message, I often compose this message in MS Word first, and then copy/paste the message into the Outlook Express Create Message text box. At the beginning of my message, I often have a simple single spaced four line header like this:

To: recipient
From: me
Date: current date
Subject: what I'm writing about

When I copy this header information into the OE Create Message text box, it appears to be correct.

When I send the message, however, and then look at the sent message in the Sent Message folder, the sent message has the header double-spaced.

This happens between each paragraph throughout the message, but NOT between lines within the paragraphs. Furthermore, this only happens when I compose my message in MS Word and then copy/paste into the OE Create Message text box.

If I create my message within OE itself, or if I send the message directly from MS Word without copy/paste, then this problem does NOT happen.

Does anybody have any idea why Outlook Express would insert blank lines into text ONLY when it has been copy/pasted from MS Word?????

Thanks in advance for any suggestions.

i'm not familiar with "express" create message box in outlook. you mention oe/outlook.

no.

i type the message into the message box or have "saved as" and send as an attachment.

it may be something in the formatting within word.
