I realize the formatting of these emails is not pretty if your email
reader uses a proportional font. The mail archives are worse ...

Let me know if there are any ideas for fixing this.

Begin each pre-formatted line with a space.  Some programs understand "\n "
[newline space] as "stop filling this line; begin a new line".
Put the columns with [mostly] fixed-width data [in this case, the dates]
on the left, with the variable-width info [the task description] on the right.
Some variable-width fonts have the same width for all digits, which helps
to preserve columns of numbers.

Some mailers have an option to send both text and html.
