vbcrlf in Outlook Redemption RDOMail object Body

I've written some VB code to forward an email message to certain individuals.  I'm using the Outlook Redemption toolset to do this task.  I'm having an issue with the Body of the email.  I want to add my own text with carriage returns and then include the sender's body below.  The vbcrlf command does not seem to be working.  All the body text is one big wrapped string in the Body of the email.

I've tried using the RDOMail's Body property and the RTFBody property with different BodyFormats and without BodyFormat defined.  I've had no luck.  I'm still getting one long wrapped string in the body.

Has anyone run into this issue?  If so, what did you do to resolve the issue?
Public Sub SendEmail(RDORcvdMail As Redemption.RDOMail, MailRecipient As String)
Dim lrdoNotifyMail As Redemption.RDOMail
Dim lstrBody       As String
On Error GoTo ErrorHandler
 
    Set lrdoNotifyMail = RDORcvdMail.Forward
    
    lrdoNotifyMail.To = MailRecipient
    lrdoNotifyMail.Subject = RDORcvdMail.Subject
    lstrBody = "Testing line 1" & vbCrLf & "Testing line 2" & vbCrLf & "Testing line 3" & vbCrLf & RDORcvdMail.Body
    lrdoNotifyMail.RTFBody = lstrBody
    lrdoNotifyMail.Send
    If Not (lrdoNotifyMail Is Nothing) Then
        Set lrdoNotifyMail = Nothing
    End If
    
    Exit Sub
.

Hi, bcullinan.

I'm familiar with Redemption, but not with using the RTFBody.  I always use HTML or plain text.  I think the RTF code for a new line is /n, but I'm not certain of that.  Is there a reason why you're using RTF format?

Thank you, BlueDevilFan.  I used HTMLBody with <BR> as the newline command and that worked.
In my debugging, I was using all the Body properties that existed for the RDOMail object with the exception of HTMLBody.  Go figure.

I've found another issue though.  I want the original sender's email body including any images in the signature to be preserved when forwarding the email.  That doesn't look to be possible with HTMLBody.  I may try to send the original message as an attachment instead.

Thanks again for the solution!
