My suggestion is to test the latest Q1 2013 version of RadControls for ASP.NET AJAX, which features great improvements over the Paste from Word process. You can test the new version in the RadEditor's live demos
. The extra spaces should be fixed when pasting from Word/Outlook and stripping only the Word formatting.
