Blank area when replying or frowarding email messages

Posted on 2011-02-14
Last Modified: 2012-06-21
When I either fwd or reply to an email a large space (29 lines in fact) is inserted between the original email header and the body of the original email.

This is easy to fix manually but having to do this for each mail is very annoying.
This only commenced relatively recently.

How to fix, please?

Are you using a signature? If so disable it and see if it helps.

Unfortunately that answer (remove signature) does not solve the problem. I removed the signature, closed Outlook and re-opened OL but same symptom persists.

Once again, unfortunately that also is not the answer. The "" file is as it should be. Whay has me intrigued is that this just started happening without any major event that i can recall.

Have you switched the editor and confirmed the problem still exists?

Switching editors is an option. But more specifically it let's us know the actually issue is with Word's edit functionality and not Outlook itself.
