Hello All,

When sending a plain text email, I want to embed a kTAB in some data.  So when the recipient receives the email, they can cut & paste into Excel.

Most (all) email apps seem to swap TAB characters for a few space characters, or maybe when the email is sent, not sure.  But the end result is not as nice.

I have read about INDENT, but uses HTML formatted email, and I really want to stick to plain text.  I could swap the kTAB for an used character and ask the end user to Find & Replace with a ^t character.  But that really is the last resort in 2023 surely.

So how can you embed a kTAB in the BodyText of a plain text email sent via the OW3 SMTP Worker?
