Line height issues in Outlook

March 1, 2017

Line height is not always consistent when viewing emails in Outlook. This is especially true when you are using bigger font sizes just like this example...


Outlook has obviously been upgraded since 2003 but this has not necessarily helped the cause for building bullet proof HTML emails without the extra hassle *sigh*.

But not to worry, to override the issue is simple.

Add mso-line-height-rule:exactly; before the line-height in all inline styles.

So something like:

<table width="600" border="0" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" class="full_width" style="width:600px;">
    <td width="600" valign="top" align="left" style="font-family:Calibri, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif; font-size:40px; color:#FFFFFF; mso-line-height-rule:exactly; line-height:36px;">
    Bla Bla Bla

We are always looking at ways to improve and tackle issues that arise, so we can keep building perfect, bullet proof HTML emails. Hopefully Microsoft’s news that they are to partner with Litmus should lead to improvements in this area. Keep an eye out on our blogs for more top tips.
