Hmm, dunno if this is a bug or a feature request... I'll let you decide :)

When reading plain text email, mostly log and status reports from my server or email from announce lists etc. the spacing of the text is off. Mainly because the message view does not use a fixed width font and multiple spaces are ignored.

This is how a message looks:

plain-mess

And this is how it should look and looks when I view it as original message:

plain-org

I am currently testing RainLoop, and I also found this to be a problem with "technical" plain text messages. Setting white-space: pre-wrap; and font-family: monospace; "fixes" the message view. However, when I reply to such a message all indentation and white-space is still lost.

Hmm, looks like the fixed width font is not used when "View in seperate window" is used.

Can you also fix this please?

Also, as previously pointed out, when I reply to a message all indentation and white-space is lost.

Fixed width in new window is also fixed. Indentation and whitepspaces on message reply, as indicated by @xrat, is still a problem though.
