I am developing a WEB BASED email client using java mail API. I have given a text area to type the email. But when the email is displayed everthing comes in the same line. For example,

Dear aaaa
    bbbb
Regards cccc


Comes as

Dear aaaabbbbRegards cccc

What should I do for this?

In HTML line Feed Command is <br> but in text based files its #10 and #13 (Line feed + Return)

U must add <br> after end of each text line.  Or other way .. But a multiline Text box in ur HTML code and set a default value of ur Email Text Body

Do you mean a TextArea. If so there is no way to add <br> after end of each text line.

The value of the textarea is simple taken as follows,
   request.getParameter("textarea_name");


Or is there are a seperate multiline textbox in html?

Thanks
Arshad.

there 2 ways..

1.  Using a textbox in ur Page. and setting the mail body as the value of the Textbox.. this is easier..


2.  If u can get the mail body line by line .. add <br> after each line of the message body


Now. send the code of writing ur mail body in ur page..

&#305; guess u use something like  <% repsonse.write(mailbody) %>  is it true ?

I appended <br> when reading the mail line by line.

thisLine = reader.readLine();
                System.out.println("Line="+thisLine);
                while ((thisLine != null) && (!thisLine.trim().equals("null")))
                {
                    sbMsg.append(thisLine+"<br>");
                    thisLine = reader.readLine();
                }

Thanks
