I'm running Microsoft Office Outlook 2003, and I always compose my messages in plain-text format. When I compose a message, my signature looks fine:
But recipients see the signature with the second, third, and fourth lines run together:
Position, Unit Region Company
How can I prevent my signature lines from running together?
Add three spaces to the beginning of each line of your signature. That should prevent Outlook's automatic plain-text line reformatting from touching those lines on recipients' machines. In an effort to make plain- text messages more readable, Outlook 2003 and Outlook 2002 by default reformat plain-text messages by removing line breaks that aren't clearly intended as paragraph breaks. Adding three spaces to the beginning of a line tells Outlook not to apply the reformatting algorithm to that line.
