Steps to Duplicate

paste it in the message body. You can send this to your self.

you had pasted earlier.
4. Now go to File | Save A,  this will bring the "Save" window
5. Under 'Saved message format', select "Plain text" and click on "Save".

Open the saved file, some of the contents towards the end would be missing. Repeat the steps above, replacing tab with "," or any other separator, no text is missing or if the same content is sent as an attachment, the data is processed correctly.
