I use mail() function of PHP to send mail to GMAIL, YAHOO...
I put <br> for End of Line
But when I view gmail, yahoo mail, The tag <br> is not change, not indicate End of line!

This is the code:

<?php

$to      = "my_gmail_acount@gmail.com";
$subject = ' Wellcome to sendmail of PHP !';
$message = '     This is line 1';
$message.= ' <br>this is Line 2 ';
$message.= ' <br>this is Line 3 ';
$headers = 'From: admin@mydomain.com' . "\r\n".
      'Reply-To: admin@mydomain.com' . "\r\n";

mail($to,$subject,$message,$headers,"-f admin@mydomain.com");  

?>

How can I resolve this problem?
Thanks in advanced!

you might want to try to use \n in addition to


<?php 
$to      = "my_gmail_acount@gmail.com";
$subject = ' Wellcome to sendmail of PHP !';
$message = '     This is line 1';
$message.= ' <br/>\nthis is Line 2 ';
$message.= ' <br/>\nthis is Line 3 ';
$headers = 'From: admin@mydomain.com' . "\r\n".
      'Reply-To: admin@mydomain.com' . "\r\n"; 
mail($to,$subject,$message,$headers,"-f admin@mydomain.com");   
?>

Use \n as angellll suggests, and REMOVE the <br/>. The latter is a html element, you are not sending an html email.

Also, the \n must be within double quotes:
<?php 
$to      = "my_gmail_acount@gmail.com";
$subject = ' Wellcome to sendmail of PHP !';
$message = "     This is line 1\n";
$message.= "this is Line 2\n";
$message.= "this is Line 3\n";
$headers = 'From: admin@mydomain.com' . "\r\n".
      'Reply-To: admin@mydomain.com' . "\r\n"; 
mail($to,$subject,$message,$headers,"-f admin@mydomain.com");   
?>
