After having a nitpicker mention indenting twice, it finally occurred to me that my email tool has a variable-width font as default. Duh.
I guess: do the nitpickers a favor and select a fixed-width font for the email before firing it off to them...

I am having the same problem when I paste the code from textpad
to my hotmail account. How did you set it to fixed width font?
thanks in advance,

In the menu View go to Document Properties, or, hit Alt-Enter. Click on the tab marked Font and select Courier.
If you are still having trouble, check your tab settings. Click on the Tabulation tab (in Document Properties) and set Default tab spacing and Indent size to 4. Then check both boxes and hit apply. Last but not least, add a space somewhere safe (like after a semi-colon) and save your program. Now all your tabs are four spaces long and should behave when you copy it to your email.
