The descender is not visible below the base line for some lower case letters


When viewing messages in Outlook 2016 where signatures are applied via Exclaimer Cloud, text may be cropped if certain font types and size combinations have been used.

A common example is that the descenders of letters such as ‘y’ and ‘g’ are cut off.


Microsoft have confirmed this as an issue with Outlook 2016. It does not occur in Outlook 2013. The issue only appears to be with certain font family and size combinations - for example: Verdana 9 (and 8.5); if set to Verdana 8, or 9.5, the issue is reduced.
