 As far as I can tell, hypermail does not do that.  Browsers convert tabs to a single space unless the text is enclosed in <pre> ... </pre>.
 What you probably want is to create a config file (normally ~/.hmrc) with one of the following two lines (try each to see which one you prefer) and either rebuild the archive from scratch or use the -x command line option to have all the messages rewritten:

showhtml = 2
showhtml = 0
