Thanks for your reply.

Word wrap seems to be ok.
What does seem to be a problem is the line breaks...

For example, they might type in the following (between the dashed

  Please send me some info.


When I receive the mail, however, it looks like this:
  Hi, Please send me some info. Thanks, Gav

This is fine for such a short message, but lengthy messages would be
horrid to read if all the line breaks were taken out...

There is wordwrap() but that function is broken in several PHP versions 
and even had a buffer overflow security problem, so I gave up on using 
it at all.

What I use is a function that is part of a message composing and sending

class that basically does the same as wordwrap except that it works well

in all PHP versions without any security problems. Check out the 
function WrapText() of the email_message_class here:
