I'm trying to add line breaks between name, phone, company, etc. in the email that is sent.  I tried editing a few things in the "var dataString" line, but it would only break the form.


/* =================================
===  CONTACT FORM          ====
=================================== */
$("#contact").submit(function (e) {
    e.preventDefault();
    var name = $("#name").val();
    var company = $("#company").val();
    var phone = $("#phone").val();
    var email = $("#email").val();
    var subject = $("#subject").val();
    var message = $("#message").val();
    var dataString = 'name=' + name + '&email=' + email + '&subject=' + subject + 'name=' + name + 'company=' + company + 'phone=' + phone + 'email=' + email + '&message=' + message;
	

 
    function isValidEmail(emailAddress) {
        var pattern = new RegExp(/^((([a-z]|\d|[!#\$%&'\*\+\-\/=\?\^_`{\|}~]|[\u00A0-\uD7FF\uF900-\uFDCF\uFDF0-\uFFEF])+(\.([a-z]|\d|[!#\$%&'\*\+\-\/=\?\^_`{\|}~]|[\u00A0-\uD7FF\uF900-\uFDCF\uFDF0-\uFFEF])+)*)|((\x22)((((\x20|\x09)*(\x0d\x0a))?(\x20|\x09)+)?(([\x01-\x08\x0b\x0c\x0e-\x1f\x7f]|\x21|[\x23-\x5b]|[\x5d-\x7e]|[\u00A0-\uD7FF\uF900-\uFDCF\uFDF0-\uFFEF])|(\\([\x01-\x09\x0b\x0c\x0d-\x7f]|[\u00A0-\uD7FF\uF900-\uFDCF\uFDF0-\uFFEF]))))*(((\x20|\x09)*(\x0d\x0a))?(\x20|\x09)+)?(\x22)))@((([a-z]|\d|[\u00A0-\uD7FF\uF900-\uFDCF\uFDF0-\uFFEF])|(([a-z]|\d|[\u00A0-\uD7FF\uF900-\uFDCF\uFDF0-\uFFEF])([a-z]|\d|-|\.|_|~|[\u00A0-\uD7FF\uF900-\uFDCF\uFDF0-\uFFEF])*([a-z]|\d|[\u00A0-\uD7FF\uF900-\uFDCF\uFDF0-\uFFEF])))\.)+(([a-z]|[\u00A0-\uD7FF\uF900-\uFDCF\uFDF0-\uFFEF])|(([a-z]|[\u00A0-\uD7FF\uF900-\uFDCF\uFDF0-\uFFEF])([a-z]|\d|-|\.|_|~|[\u00A0-\uD7FF\uF900-\uFDCF\uFDF0-\uFFEF])*([a-z]|[\u00A0-\uD7FF\uF900-\uFDCF\uFDF0-\uFFEF])))\.?$/i);
        return pattern.test(emailAddress);
    };

    if (isValidEmail(email) && (message.length > 1) && (name.length > 1)) {
        $.ajax({
            type: "POST",
            url: "subscribe/sendmail.php",
            data: dataString,
            success: function () {
                $('.success').fadeIn(1000);
                $('.error').fadeOut(500);
            }
        });
    } else {
        $('.error').fadeIn(1000);
        $('.success').fadeOut(500);
    }

    return false;
});
