Finally, I found this : https://communities.sas.com/t5/SAS-Programming/Proc-ODS-text-in-PowerPoint/td-p/354175 

 

%let spaces=^{unicode 00A0}^{unicode 00A0}^{unicode 00A0}^{unicode 00A0}^{unicode 00A0};

proc odstext;
  p "Hello";
  p "&spaces Hello";
  p "&spaces &spaces Hello";
run;

Are you sending a pure-text mail or html?

ods listing close;

it's html:
ods html body=myemail options(pagebreak="no")
rs=none style=minimal;

options nocenter nobyline pagesize=max;
ods escapechar='^';
data _null_;

I used the style-option asis=on when creating excel files with strange indentation, not sure if this work with html + mail.

Use TAB character instead ?

 

p "  '09'x     - Fixes lalala,";
p "  '09'x    - Variables, lalalal.";
