Hello,

I've been trying to format an email that is automatically sent from our sharepoint site workflow, but this is proving problematic as outlook is placing large spaces over the email seemingly needlessly and it really isn't looking at all like it should.

Can anybody suggest what changes I need to make to the code to make this work with outlook?

Attached is a screenshot of the output in outlook and also a shot of what it should look like.

Thanks

Josh
