formatting issues

Skip to first unread message

I have an IMP program that I sometimes use to send emails. I send plain text emails using a monospaced font (New Courier), and it is important to me that the recipient of my email message receive that message in exactly the same format as I typed it in. However, IMP occasionally makes two changes to my outgoing messages; these changes mangle the appearance of the message the receiver gets:

1. Occasionally, line-breaks (i.e. carriage-returns) will be removed by the program.
2. Occasionally, a series of spaces will be eliminated (e.g. I have created a table and spaced out the columns, and the columns are all jumbled in the recipient’s email).

For complicated reasons to do with my recipient’s computer system, I don’t have the option of sending messages in HTML or RTF format.

Is there a way to set IMP so that it sends the plain text message in exactly the format I’ve typed it in?

Thank you in advance for any help you can offer.
