spufi to email formatting

We have a spufi query job that sends the output to email.

But the formatting of the columns do not line up.

Might there be any spufi output formatting options I could use to correct this?

thanks

Bill

Could your e-mail be using a variable width font?

From Google:

A monospaced font, also called a fixed-pitch, fixed-width, or non-proportional font, is a font whose letters and characters each occupy the same amount of horizontal space. [...] Examples of monospaced fontsinclude Courier, Courier New, Lucida Console, Monaco, and Consolas.

You might be able to determine by checking the e-mail properties/headers, or simply cut & paste a SPUFI output screen into your mail package & send it to yourself.

N.b. I generally switch the e-mail type from plain-text to html or rtf, select the output lines & change it to courier new. If your batch SPUFI specifies the font, change it there, or look at Postel's RFC for SMTP.
