Outlook Stationery template Double spacing

Hi there

I have created an Outlook template but when I use it to create an email the text is double spaced when I use return.
If I use Shift + return then I get single spacing

How do I solve this issue?
I have attached my code
Many thanks this is driving me nuts

add some code after the title closing tag:

<STYLE type=text/css>
<!--
body,td,th,p {
	font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;
margin:0in;
margin-bottom:.0001pt;
font-size:12.0pt;
color: #5789b5;
}
-->
</STYLE>

remove the code (I see it twice):
 padding: 10px 0 10px 0;

It was already working after you added my code if you started typing at the "Your ref: Our ref:" part, but this last edit will make it work at the address part and further too

Hi There

I still have the problem after removing the "padding: 10px 0 10px 0"

If I type at Your ref / Our Ref and then press return I get double spacing. Code below
