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...
That is not the correct behaviour of wordwrap(). As I said, wordwrap() is broken in some PHP versions and that is why I use my class function WrapText() instead of wordwrap().

Of course I use my class for more than just wrapping text as it is mostly meant to compose and send properly formatted e-mail messages, some in HTML with alternative text parts, embedded images in HTML, attachments, etc.. If you do not need all that, you may just take out the WrapText function and use it separately as it does not need the rest of the class functions.

Would someone mind pointing me to a function, or some code, or give me

a seudo-code start for the following:

I'm using the mail() function.
If someone submits the form with text in the multi-line textarea, any carrige returns (ie, by pressing ENTER) are taken out & the body is sent as a single line. I'm sending the e-mail in plain text.

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:
