|New lines in mails generated by php|
| 7:30 pm on Oct 3, 2007 (gmt 0)|
I was wondering how I can best create new lines in mails via php. Should I add \n to the message or <br>?

It depends on what you make the MIME type.
If you have ="text/html"
Then <br /> will work..
If you have ="text/plain"
Then typing returns into the code itself should do the job of adding space.

Adding \n will give you a line break in the source code if you have a html MIME type, but wont give you a visual break in the browser. Using <br /> will give you a visual break.

When making system-generated emails for my site (thanks for subscribing, etc) I usually set the body as a large text var like this:
$body = "Hello,
thanks for subscribing....
Also, may I mention that our forum is pack full of information....
More words here.....
This method will generate a text email with line breaks wherever I put them in the $body var. It is easier to work with than "\n" and works on both HTML and plain text mail readers.
Hope that helps.
