# Question on the arrangement of spacing in the newlfm document class

I'd like to reduce the space between the address part \addrfrom and the greeting text \greetto in the newlfm document class. For instance, when I compile my file;

\documentclass[11pt,stdletter,dateno,sigleft]{newlfm}
\usepackage{etoolbox}
\today\\[11pt]
\textbf{Dudley Dursley}\\
4 Privet Drive, Little Whinging, Surrey\\
England, Great Britain
}
\greetto{Dear Dr. Snape,}

\begin{document}
\begin{newlfm}

\end{newlfm}
\end{document}


there is a considerably big gap between two fields. I tried \vspace, but did not work. I was wondering if someone could help me out.

This length is set using \addrfromskipafter{<len>}. So, add something like this to your preamble:

\addrfromskipafter{10pt}% Default is 36pt


There's no need for using newlfm. Instead, the article class is sufficient:

\documentclass{article}

\usepackage[margin=1in]{geometry}

\setlength{\parindent}{0pt}

\begin{document}

\hspace{.6\linewidth}%
\begin{tabular}{ l }
\today                                  \\[11pt]
\bfseries Dudley Dursley                \\
4 Privet Drive, Little Whinging, Surrey \\
England, Great Britain
\end{tabular}

Dear Dr.~Snape,
