Mail Format Issues

Hi All,

I 'm trying to find a way to send my contents of a file as a body of email in the format shown below. However, the format of the contents are messed up when I receive the email.

Code:
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
|BATCH_DT|SI|XXX_COUNT |XXX_BALANCE       |YYY_COUNT |YYY_BALANCE       |DIFF_COUNT |DIFF_BALANCE       |
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
|20150731|05|0000000132|000001182401644.77|0000000100|000001000000000.00|+0000000032|+000000182401644.77|
|20150731|09|0000026468|000001189347835.97|0000099999|000009999999999.99|-0000073531|-000008810652164.02|
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Is there anything we could so that the format remains same in the email please? Any help is really appreciated.

Thanks
Shash

That's because of the e-mail-client is using a true type font.
You'll need to either select a monospace font or send an HTML file.
