Signature Formatting. Office 2003


I have a remote user who changed her signature.
It looks fine in the preview box, but when she open's a new mail, it appears to be double spaced.
It should be single spaced.

Any ideas on fixing this?

I think I remember having this problem once, and I belive I fixed it by editing the signature file directly.

You should be able to find those files in the following location (this is on XP)

C:\Documents and Settings\USERNAME\Application Data\Microsoft\Signatures

if she only has one signature, there should be maybe three files in there, an .html, an .rtf and a txt.

depending on what format she sends her emails in, depends on which one would need to be edited.

btw, nice to see you back I thought I had heard you weren't around anymore...

Well that didn't work, but what did work was rather amusing

I did shift + Enter in her signature.

And now it appears "normal"  thanks for the suggestions bruno.
like any other HTML editor.  :-)

shift -enter usually enters a <br> rather than a <p> tag, which is a block level element and in HTML will create the double spaced effect, but i am sure you knew that.  

thanks for poinkers - i should really go do my taxes now.  lol
