Formatting Issue - First line of text outdented in Outlook


Formatting Issue - First line of text outdented in Outlook

Good afternoon,


I'm hoping someone can help me with some formatting issues I'm having when my email appears in Outlook. 

The first line of every text paragraph is outdented about three characters. Also, when an image is beside a text box, the image is also shifted to the left and often gets partially cut off. 


These issues do not appear when using a mobile device to view the email through outlook, only desktop.


I originally thought this perhaps was a Constant Contact/Outlook common issue, but I have not found anyone else share of this problem and I receive emails from other organizations that use CC and those emails do not have the outdent issue. I've also tried starting from scratch with my newsletter to see if it was from copying prior emails, but I get the same issue no matter what. 


Thank you!
