php line spacing

See attached php scripts. The one with _prev is the previous one.

I have had a lot of issues with php mail function on this web server so I decided (at the recommendation of several EE Experts) to use a different class, class.phpmailer.php. I also attached it. I have successfully used it in another portion of this application.

In the script updt_test.php, it works fine & generates the email correctly; it just does NOT put line spacing after each line in the email body. Not that the previous version used "\n" at the end of line. I tried adding "\r\n" as in updt_test.php, still no line break.

The following is the sent email:

A new instant customer has been added to the on-line database as follows: Full Name: RK Associates Contact Name: Richard Korts Billing Address 1: 866 Chardonney Way Billing Address 2: Billing Address 3: Billing Address 4: City: Escondido State: CA Zip: 92029 Phone: 760-746-3263 FAX: 92029 Alt. Phone: 760-489-1780 Alt. Contact: E-Mail: richardkorts@gmail.com Major Intersecting: Source: Timer & Location:

I know I solved this problem YEARS ago but for some reason, it no longer works.

How can I make it work?
updt-test.php
updt-test-prev.php
class.phpmailer.php

"\r\n" works in plain text email.  <br> must be used in HTML email.

Try using:  echo "\r\n"

Yes, of course I knew that, I did not realize that the class defaulted to HTML (which is a GOOD thing).

That fixed it up perfectly.

Thanks
