The email works but everything is run together. I need a new line at the end of both test lines, some lines in between the two sets and new lines for each line in the txt files.

Any suggestions?


-BodyAsHtml `
    -Body  @"
      The Following Were tested and are up and can be logged into
     $(((Get-Content C:\MonitorFolder\ServersUp.txt) | out-string)
      
      
       "The Following Were tested and are either DOWN or CANNOT be logged into"
       ((Get-Content C:\MonitorFolder\ServersDown.txt) | out-string))
"@

Either don't use the the -BodyAsHtml switch parameter, or remember that when you do use it your email is HTML and needs to be formatted accordingly.
An example with:
-BodyAsHtml `
    -Body  @"
      The Following Were tested and are up and can be logged into<br>
     $((Get-Content C:\MonitorFolder\ServersUp.txt) -join "<br>")
       <p>
       The Following Were tested and are either DOWN or CANNOT be logged into<br>
       $((Get-Content C:\MonitorFolder\ServersDown.txt) -join "<br>")
"@
