New installation of office 2013 and the user is complaing that the "from" view doesn't have the same spacing between senders that existed in 2010, I have checked and they are correct prior versions had a distinct space between groups in the message list.

Any way to correct this to make it look a bit more like it used to in prior versions using that view, don't see anything obvious.

You should be above to put your cursor on the bar between From and Subject and move it right to make it the field bigger. You may have to adjust the right ones smaller. That is what I do in my Outlook 2013.

Thanks but im meaning the space between sender categories vertically, on the 2010 screen you will see there is almost like a carriage return in between each persons category in "from" view.

In 2013 its more a continuous block with no vertical gaps?

I cannot tell very well from the picture above.

In Outlook, in the View Menu, turn Message Preview OFF. This provides single spacing for the mail lines and is the most compact view available.

Still not exactly what im meaning but i'll accept it on the basis that playing with the preview settings does make it slightly better spaced, it's still a worse view than 2010 though because it is more compact, good "upgrade" MS once again.

@David Dryden  - Thank you. Yes, the best you can do in Outlook 2013 is not as good as Outlook 2010, but I find that I can work with it.
