When using orchestrator to send emails I found it a bit problematic to send a plain mail with formated data.

The solution was easy and silly. I needed to change the mail type to html and create some html in the body. All I ever wanted to create a “tab” in the mail to separate two values and what I got was to create a whole table. The mail was looking nice and this is how a report-mail should look like. Although the technical part of me says that a plain text email with a comma separated list should be enough.

Here is the report you wanted this month:
<table>
<tr><th>Type</th><th>Amount</th></tr>
<tr><td>Product A</td><td>a value</td></tr>
<tr><td>Product B</td><td>a value</td></tr>
<tr><td>Product C</td><td>a value</td></tr>
</table>
