How to draft a manuscript before sending to the publisher?


Hello Fellow hubbers, I have just finished my first manuscript (fiction). Please advise me on how to format the manuscript before sending it to a publisher. What should be the format - size, font, spacing etc? Do I need to include a synopsis and cover letter? I wish to do it perfectly so that I wont have to resend it again with the specifications. I am excited that I am inching closer to my dream of getting published.
