Follows a MAIL "body=" command to add additional text to the original BODY of the message.  The text value should be one line of text. It is optionally separated by newline (\n) characters from any following lines added  with MAIL "body_add=".  The user must perform all line wrapping. The text will be sent verbatim, line-by-line, except if longer than 998 characters. Lines longer than 998 characters will be split, not necessarily at word boundaries, to comply with RFC 821, so it's a really good idea to do line wrapping using the new line characters /n, before passing your text.

Must be specified before each MAIL "send" command. MAIL "send" clears the buffer of any previous MAIL "body=" and MAIL "body_add" entries.

It is recommended to use the curly brackets {} if possible avoid interpreter from misunderstanding punctuation. If the contents must be evaluated by Tcl, like $variable or [GETVAL tagname], then quote marks "" should be used as the delimiter.

Special formatting characters are:

\n - starts a new line
\t - tabs the line
\\ - includes a single back slash \ in the message
\{ - includes a single curly bracket { in the message
\} - includes a single curly bracket } in the message
