Outlook messages viewed do not print as displayed

We have written a program using Informix that captures information from our database, uses AIX mail command to send unique output to each of our 7000 employees that ends up as Outlook email on our Exchange server.  Our problem is that the text formatting that remains perfect throughout the process, including viewing of the email, becomes wrapped when printed.

Has anyone else encountered and overcome this sort of problem.  Our district uses MS Outlook 2000 for email.

Is it possible that you are using only chr(12) or chr(10) but not both?  Both of these characters should be used to indicate a new line.

Make that chr(13) and chr(10).  I knew something sounded funny about that.
