Hello there.
I wanted to know how I can make net send start a sentence on a new line...
I want the reciever of the message to see a message like this:
-------
Dear User:

Please ....
-------

I tried something like this:

net send localhost Dear User: \n Please...

But Net Send Doesn't recognize the \n character.

What Character do I give it so that it will break the line and write on a new line?

Thanks.

Shouldn't all users have the same email signature?

You wouldn't let your users design their own business cards, would you? So, why do you let them design their own email signatures? Think of the damage they could be doing to your brand reputation! Choose the easy way to manage set up and add email signatures for all users.
