I am indeed exporting the a text format and in this text format the top-level headlines are underlined with either a '=' if I export to ASCII or some UTF symbol if I export to UTF-8. Whether the underlining is the same length as the headline itself depends on whether the font used to display the text is fixed-width or proportional. >> As most of the recipients will probably not be using a fixed-width font for >> their mail clients, > > And this assumes that they are fine with html messages otherwise they would > use fixed-width font. I'm not sure this is true. Someone might not like HTML mail for security reasons, but still might use a proportional font. In addition, at least a few of the recipients certainly will be using a fixed-width font. >> I would like to be able to toggle the underlining and just rely on the >> numbering of the headlines. > >> I'd didn't find anything which seemed relevant here > >> https://orgmode.org/manual/Export-Settings.html > >> so is this possible?
