Outlook multi-spacing Thunderbird signatures when replying

    Our office is mixed Thunderbird and Outlook 2010 clients. When an Outlook user (internal or external) replies to a message sent by a Thunderbird user, the original signature appears multi-spaced in the reply's copy of the original. The Thunderbird signature block is an HTML table. In examining the resulting Outlook formatting, the culprit is obvious. For each line of the signature is:

    <p class=MsoNormal style='margin-top:24.0pt'>

    followed by the text of the original Thunderbird signature table row. So, table rows are converted to paragraphs which have a top margin of 24 points or 1/3", each!

    I have run multiple test with Yahoo Mail, GMAIL, AOL, and OWA (.e.g. hotmail.com). All these render the signature just fine. Only Outlook 20xx appears to explode the signature. This has become an issue in the office. Is there anything that can be done about it?
