On various examples, the increased line-spacing forced unwanted space to appear and skewed email campaigns. This notably affected emails that were specifically designed to have a set amount of text next to an image.

Take this as an example:


Unfortunately, Outlook.com’s default line-height has caused the paragraphs/text to be a bit more spaced out forcing space under the image. But don’t worry; this can be easily fixed by adding a line of code in the style tag at the top of the HTML.

<style type="text/css">
.ExternalClass * {line-height: 100%;}
