A solution may be to send a link of the results . This will reduce e-mail
to at most a few sentences which a fixed mail template may be used .

Now phones and tablets are in wide use which they are not very suitable to
receive long e-mails .

To overcome this difficulty , if FreeBSD mailing lists includes in each
mail a link in the mailing list archives of the message itself , even it
may not be necessary to reproduce each mail in subsequent mails .  Only
referencing its link will be sufficient .

Thank you very much .
