Wow, so it is just me, or rather outlook.com.

I also posted to a subversion mailing list by copying and pasting log text from a linux command prompt via VM into and outlook.com email in Chrome.
It was clear on my side, even looking at Sent Items and thought maybe CR was being pasted and not LF.
But that was not the case in my email to you. The only thing copied was the m4 version output.

This is clearly a problem. Who should it be directed to?
I think the conversation should be between the email server maintainers (gnu, outlook).

Also, understood for the headsup about the master branch.

I'm not sure which branch of m4.git you are looking at.  Most recent
development has been on the branch-1.4 branch, and not on the master
branch; I wish I had more time to devote to at least getting 1.6 out the
door and bringing master up-to-date with fixes that have already been
pushed to 1.4.

Do NOT use the master branch (1.9a...) for bootstrapping.  It is highly
experimental still, and NOT ready for release yet.
