Hello,
I am not sure how it happened but the format of all of my emails changed. As you can see from the attachment, the space available to type has been shrunk (see ruler)--I can only type in the middle of the email in a limited space. How do I change it back?

    Hi @Markos Kalogeras ,
    Welcome to Microsoft Q&A and posting your question here.
    Thanks for your detailed explanation so that I can understand your issue.

    According to my search, it is recommended that you check the margins in you Outlook, you need to look at the Paragraph settings and Page Setup. Both the Left and Right Indentation should be set to 0 (zero).
    On the Format tab, click the Expander icon to open the Paragraph dialog. (If the ruler is visible, you can also point to the indentation triangles and double click to open the dialog instead.)

    If you want to keep the settings for all new messages, click Set as Default button at the bottom of the dialog, then choose All documents based on NormalEmail.dotm template and click OK.
