Yes, I did read the stickied post about formatting, and have followed it to the letter. :) My first question has to do with how to format when sending a set amount in the body of an email. I'm guessing that I don't want to use the same format? Ie, double spaced, courier new? Should I go with TNR and single spaced?

Second question, the formatting described in the sticky, is that just for hard copy? Do I use that same formatting when an agent wants chapters attached in a file? Because I don't know if they intend to print them out or read on the computer. I've looked and haven't seen anyone address this, so maybe it's something I shouldn't worry about, but I'm new and I worry about everything.

I looked in Basic Writing Questions forum and used Search this Forum to search for keywords formatting email -- which listed a number of older threads, e.g.
