Tokio, I'm not so sure about adding that extra space.  I tested all the mail readers at my disposal on Linux and OSX.  I don't have any Windows machines available so I couldn't test Outlook or OE.  (If you have them, please indicate  what they do in a comment here!)  Here's what I found:

OSX:
  Mail.app 2.1.1 -- the extra space produces an extra space between the 8 and 9 both in the message summary and in the Subject header in the preview pane.  The no extra space message looks fine.
  Thunderbird 1.5.0.10 -- The extra space message produces an extra space in the message summary, while the no extra space message looks fine here.  But the weird thing is that in both the extra space and non-extra space cases, the Subject header in the preview pane both have extra spaces.  It looks to me like the leading tab is being inserted into the Subject header view.
  Entourage 11.3.3 -- The extra space shows up in both the summary and preview panes but only in the message with the extra space

Linux
  Thunderbird 1.5.0.10 -- both messages get a tab between the 8 and 9 in both the summary and preview pane.  This is for both the extra space message and the no-extra space message; afaict, there's no difference between the two and this is definitely a difference between the Linux version and the OSX version of the same mail reader.
  Evolution 2.9.92 -- the extra space message produces an extra space between the 8 and 9 in both the summary and preview panes.  The no-extra space message looks fine.
  Sylpheed Claws 2.6.0 -- the extra space message produces an extra space between the 8 and 9 in both the summary and preview panes.  The no-extra space message looks file.

So anyway, afaict, the extra space is not appropriate for any of the non-Windows mail readers.
