Thanks and Regards, Srihitha.
This sounds like it’s more of an issue with your email client rather than the data as you have said it works when you download it and open it in another application.
CSV is just comma separated text, so unless your email client knows a different way to render it, it will treat it as text.
I believe Outlook can use Excel as a preview tool if you have an Office 365 subscription, and that would render into rows and columns as you are expecting.
