I have a multipage form and I have it sent to my email but its not formatted. Is there a way I can have each value from the form on one line. Right now its all bunched together.
Thanks

you have to use escape characters like \r and \n where you want to make a new line

Please, take the time and do some research and find out how much it would have cost you to get your help from a decent paid-for source. A "roll-of-the-dice" freelancer will charge you $5-$15/hr. A decent entry level freelancer will charge you around $15-30/hr. A professional will charge you anywhere from $50-$100/hr. An agency will charge anywhere from $100-$250/hr. Think about all this when soliciting for help here. Think about how much money you are making from the work you are asking for help on. No, we do not expect you to pay for the help given here, but donating a few bucks is a fraction of the cost of what you would have paid, shows your appreciation, helps motivate people to keep offering help without the pricetag, and helps make this a higher quality free-help community :)

So it should look like this:

$_POST['value'] \n . $_POST['value2'] \n . $_POST['value3'] and so on

no it needs to be inside quotes, and you actually want to do both \r\n because \n is only recognized as next line for unix, \r only for mac and you need both \r\n for windows so depending on where the email is sent... just do both.

$msg = $_POST['value'] . "\r\n" . $_POST['value2'] . "\r\n" . $_POST['value3'];

like that.
