Why is the last line of my email a different size of text?
In Nutshell, when sending an email from an individual company, person, or lead page, the email signature section starts with two dashes

In Markdown, if you add a dashed line immediately under a line of text, it will increase the size of that text. To avoid this, make sure you leave an extra space above your email signature section.
