No, there is nothing automatic, but it is a fairly simple programming
problem to solve:

Take your list and transform it to a string with ToString.  Then use the
string manipulation commands to delete the curly braces or replace
commas with spaces.  If you try and put return characters into a
string, it will just show the \n, so make separate WriteAppends for
each line you want.
Remove the _nospam_ in the return address to respond.
