I am trying to write cover letter using Latex, I found out about newlfm class, I almost got what I wanted, but I can't make him indent any paragraphs.

What I want is to get first line of every paragraph indented. Is it possible to achieve something like that using this class?

How about \setlength\parindent{5pt} (Place this in the preamble.)? You can change the paragraph indentation with this for the entire document. – azetina Jun 7 '12 at 21:30
