Hi there everyone

I am wondering why the PHP's mail() function will always add extra carriage returns to the message body when the email is sent out?

For example, if I have something like :

Yours Sincerely,

in the actual email, it becomes :

Yours Sincerely,


with that annoying extra carriage return after "Yours Sincerely,"

Could this have something to do with my header specs? This is the only important thing I have :
MIME-Version: 1.0

I didn't even specify the Content-type, and I assume it should be text/plain by default

Please help, thanks in advance

Best guess, sans code, is that the message is generated exactly as you've coded it. I've never had that problem.
Legend has it that reading the manual never killed anyone.
