i use mail in plaintext mode with format=flowed disabled. in some cases, mailnews is converting tabs to newlines (od shows \r\n). this does not happen to all tabs though. i am trying to figure out why it happens in certain cases. here's how to reproduce: open up mailnews and start a new message. enter a table such as the below using tabs to separate columbs: col1 col2 row1 val1.1 val1.2 row2 val2.1 val2.2 send the message. on receipt, it shows up as below: col1 col2 row1 val1.1 val1.2 row2 val2.1 val2.2 in the above its not that the columns are being wrapped around. the source actually contains a "\r\n" after each column! if i just put tabs in the middle of a sentence, however, this strange behaviour does not happen. the tabs are left intact.
I make this a duplicate of Bug 144188. Because I commented many in Bug 144188. sorry. *** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 144188 ***
