The fonts and formatting used in reading Outlook 365 Windows 10 inbound email has changed

Suddenly, the fonts and formatting used in reading Outlook 365 inbound email has changed.  The spacing is off, and very difficult to read. Computer is Windows 10 Pro

I ran the Quick Repair, and set up a new profile.  Neither of those two steps helped - the problem exists even in a new profile.

As of 2 days ago, here is what a message looked like

Here is what the format has changed to:

How can the default settings be restored?

Can you check the font, and use the same font in Word or Wordpad? If it looks the same there (the "wrong" way), then you have to fix your system font(s).

I poked around Outlook, and it looks like the problem has something to do with the Immersive Reader option, which seems to have appeared out of nowhere.  

There is an option under Immersive reader that changed (not for the better for us) the Text Spacing

I have closed immersive Reader, and we'll see if it 'comes back' on its own.
