EMail column alignment in Basic

I have a program in PowerBasic (could be VB as well, or any other language) that creates a txt file that has 3 columns.  When viewing the txt file in any editor, the columns align and look great.  Each column is seperated by the appropriate number of space characters (I've used " " and CHR$(32))

I send it as plain text and when I open it in Outlook 2010...Voila! Garbage!
The columns do not line up.

Anyone have a solution for this?

Use fixed-width font such as Courier New for the message

Or you could try using a tab character to separate the columns, though it isn't always clear how to do that in some text editors.

too bad there's not a way to "transmit" that you want it in that font for plain text
