My line feeds don't show up in outlook

From a CDO message sent from webserver

I'm trying to send a text only email, but my line feeds are lost when the email comes in. I'm using something like this:

mailbody = "Something on this line" & vbCrLf & "Something on this line too"

CDO.TextBody = mailbody

What do I use to get my line feeds to show up in a text only email? If I view the message source the line feeds are there, it just doesn't display them in outlook.

Are you certain you aren't sending the messages as HTML?

No, I'm not :) I'm assuming that when you set the TextBody it sends as text?

Here's my code:

Ahhh, guess what. I just found the problem. For some reason the include with the modified sub routine didn't get published with the rest :o I'm at home now and connecting straight to the server, that's why I only just noticed it. I havn't tested but I'm guessing that's the problem :) Thanks. Always the little things, isn't it ;)

It may also be the 'remove line breaks' feature in Outlook:
