E-Mail using Mail.app

I'm a recent convert to the Mac. One thing that always bugs me about Mail.app is that whenever I recieve an email from someone who composed it using Outlook, there is an extra blank line appened after every paragraph. So you see two blank lines where there should be only one.

Anyone else experience this? Any remedy to this annoying "feature?"

Aaron, Outlook may be sending the message in HTML format, and by using a <P> instead of a <BR>, is two returns versus one.

A LOT of apps can send E-Mail using HTML, and the apps prefer it too. I always tell it to use plain text (Netscape/Mozilla/Outlook/Outlook Express) as apposed to HTML formatting.

I don't think that's it. Aaron said it left two blank lines between paragraphs. Use of the <p> tag would leave one blank line between paragraphs.
