How do I send a multiine header in a email sent through PHP's mail function. Something line this:

X-MY-HEADER:  **********************
                                HELLO WOLRLD !
                       **********************

I tried using:

mail("me@mymail.com", "test", "test", "X-MY-HEADER: firstline \r\n secondline")

mail("me@mymail.com", "test", "test", "X-MY-HEADER: firstline \n secondline\r\n")

But they sent the second line in body of message. Please help.

Hi akashwiz,

What about

firstline\r\nsecondline\r\n?

Or does it need to have something like this?

firstline\r\nComment: secondline\r\n?

Regards,

firstline\r\nsecondline\r\n   sent the second line in the body and firstline\r\nComment: secondline\r\n added another header "comment". I want both lines to be a part of same header.

I don't know if this is possible. I guess you can also try

firstline\r\n:secondline\r\n

This is possible as I am receiving mails with same type of headers but unable to reproduce the same. Or is there a way by which I can insert hidden text into a e-mail?

I want to insert some multiline text in the mails I send which remains invisible to the receiver. One way is to use a multiline header. But I don't know how to do it. Yes I am receiving mails with multiline headers.
