How do I write a new line in "NET SEND" ??

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.
