Reporting services e-mail format does not match that found through web site

I have a simple SQL reporting services 2005 report with two columns and a heading line.  It looks great when viewing through a browser; however, when I set up an e-mail subscription using Web Archive the formatting is not the same as that found on the designed report.  The heading and columns are wrapping with the columns 'shrunk' for some reason.  I would like the report to be seen in the e-mail and not an attachment.

yep.. thats my solution to the problem. I havnt found any other way of doing it. You will find that some reports look fine in preview but when you view them on the report server, they layout isnt as you set it up but if you export to pdf.. they look fine. I think there is a bug in the html export process in reporting services.
