    try this:


    you need both %0D and %0A so that it will work on different platforms (it's a linebreak/carriage return combination (or possibly the other way round ))

    It does not work.... It displays the %0D%0A thing in the email.

    hmmm. works fine here (Outlook Express 6, IE 6, Win2k).
    probably a platform/browser/email program issue.

    if you have access to server side scripting (which clearly you do), why not send the email from a script rather than using the 'mailto'?

    where does it work fine ?

    where does it work fine ? on my application or your testing ? if it's your testing, then it would be great if you could send some script to me.

    Hmm, yeah at the beginning I did that, but I decided to change a little bit, so the user does not get 2 emails at once.

    just in my testing

    actually, I just typed it into a browser location bar, hang on, I'll give it a go from getURL...

    ok, this works fine from button action in Flash 5 and MX (latter provided you publish to browser):

    Is your current version live with that code? Do you want me to try it there to? What do I have to do?

    What email client are you using? The octal codes %0D%0A work on the most popular clients, i.e., Outlook,. Netscape, etc.

    both Microsoft Outlook 2000 and Outlook Express 5, can't display those things...they simply put out the stuff. ARRGH!!!

    Testing Email

    I need some feedback for the "Truth" website. Mainly I want to know if you click on "Click here to tell a friend" works fine. (So, that the email looks fine) and if not, I would be very pleased if someone can tell me where I did the error.
