Double line spacing - solved with minor drawback

On Internet there are numerous threads on the issue of double line spacing when sending mails to Gmail back and forth.

I had a macro running to solve that. Though the macro is still in place, after changing to Office 365, it stopped working.
see: Run macro automatically at sending an email

Don't know why, nothing has changed. Sadly, I could not get it working again.

Found a relatively simple solution to get rid of the double line spacing.

Outlook -> File ->Options -> Mail -> go down to "Message format"
Deselect option "Use Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) for appearance of messages"

Drawback - the thin line, serving as message separator, is removed, regretfully so.

(probably there is no way to avoid that)
