Sorry, you are right.

I'm using hypermail ver 2.1.4. I have to deal with different input mails in plain text, richt text and html format. These mails contain tab characters (f.e. for a table). I would like to have these tabs preserved and taken into the html files. (As good as possible) At the moment, hypermail converts the tabs into one simple space (blank) character.

here is the command I use. I have no additional options set so far.

hypermail -d .../mailarchive -m /var/mail/archive

Hope this was more specific.

HTML has no concept of TAB characters. Hypermail tries to translate them into
a number of &nbsp;s. Can you be more specific on what input you have, what output you get, what you wanted to get and what options you use?

Ah, and what hypermail version you run...
