NiFi - How to put Flowfile Content into PutEmail message body

Explorer

I have a line by line list in my flowfile, which records the result of some file processing, somthing like the following;

 

C:\Data\client1\order100.txt - SUCCESS

C:\Data\client1\order122.txt - ERROR

C:\Data\client1\order323.txt - SUCCESS

 

I can't see a way to add this flowfile content to the e-mail MessageBody.

 

I have therefore tried an ExtractText processor with message.body as an attribute and (.*) as the regex. This gets me close, but all the filenames are on the same line, so I end up with this;

 

C:\Data\client1\order100.txt - SUCCESS C:\Data\client1\order122.txt - ERROR C:\Data\client1\order323.txt - SUCCESS

 

Which is not quite the e-mail I'm looking for. Any sensible suggestions welcome.

Actually I just put it into the mail as it was.

 

Then when the mail arrives, all the newlines are there..!

 

Its just that the attribute doesn't render the newlines...

 

Problem solved.
