Dear Sir,
what you does is perfect.
htmlspecialchars(str_replace("vbcrlf", "<br>", $message), ENT_QUOTES);

it actually should be like
htmlspecialchars(str_replace(vbcrlf, "<br>", $message), ENT_QUOTES);

vbCrlf is a constant so you should not use quotation. try it.

htmlspecialchars(str_replace(vbcrlf, "<br>", $message), ENT_QUOTES);

ERROR
--------
Notice: Use of undefined constant vbcrlf - assumed 'vbcrlf' in c:\program files\apache group\apache\htdocs\sendmail.php on line 60
wht u can do is put the constant value of vbcrlf or otherwise u can try char(13) or char(10) instead of vbcrlf
