Default InDesign and word spacing


I'm using the latest version of Adobe Indesign for the Mac to create a 3 column, fully justified newsletter. My problem is the automatic spacing between words in the columns. Is there a way to get Indesign to treat the spacing between words the same as a Word Processor does, i.e. Word or Word Perfect.

Now, I know that Indesign is not a word processor. And I'm also aware that when you use justification that you will have more space in some places than others. But my main issue is when it appears that there is no space between the words and there is actually a physical space there. Then I have to physically go back to each place where this occurs, select the text that's jumbled together, and adjust it via the toolbar.

I'm still relatively new to Indesign and I love it.

Any ideas would be most appreciated.
