Mark Moloney asks how to format the T-letter for plain text e-mail.

I would use asterisks (*) for bullets and indents. You might also have to
modify your wording about the table/list somewhat. Here's an example:

* 3+ years technical writing experience
2 years Junior Technical Writer at Acme Corp.
3 years Technical Communicator at Whizzbang Systems Inc.

* Experience with a Help Authoring Tool
Created and maintained help systems with RoboHelp and ForeHelp.

OK, that's a fairly generic and probably not great example of what to list,
but it should give you an idea as to how you can communicate the points of a
t-letter in plain text e-mail.
