Line-Height in Outlook

Here is an example of some body copy that will retain the prescribed line-height in Outlook. The code “mso-line-height-rule:exactly;” is added between the “font-size” and the “line-height” in the inline styles in the <td>. This allows Outlook to recognize the styling.

Note: Text getting cut off in Outlook? This means the line-height is set too small. Make sure the line-height is at least 1px or 2px larger than the font-size.

<table cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" border="0" width="100%">
  <tr>
    <td align="left" valign="top" style="font-family:Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif; font-size:14px; mso-line-height-rule:exactly; line-height:18px; color:#3a3a3a; padding:20px 20px 20px 20px;">This copy will have the correct line-height in Outlook.</td>
  </tr>
