How do I put carriage returns into an e-mail?

If you are using HTML mail, you can use HTML carriage returns. For example, if the body is coming from a textarea, you'll want to use the following to put HTML carriage returns in: 
 
<% 
    ' ... 
    body = request.form("textareabody") 
    body = replace(body,vbCrLf,"<br>") 
    ' ... 
%>
 
If you are using plain text, then you just need to insert the VbCrLf constant to generate carriage returns. For example: 
 
<% 
    ' ... 
    body = "Hello Aaron," & vbCrLf & vbCrLf & "How are you?" 
    ' ... 
%>
 
In JScript, you woul duse the \r\n escape sequence within the string: 
 
<script language='jscript' runat=server> 
 
    // ... 
    var body = "Hello Aaron,\r\n\r\nHow are you?" 
    // ... 
 
</script>
 
T-SQL 
 
If you are sending e-mail from SQL Server (see Article #2403), you can use the CHAR equivalents of a CR/LF pair as follows: 
 
SET @msg = 'Hello Aaron,' 
    + CHAR(13) + CHAR(10) 
    + CHAR(13) + CHAR(10) 
    + 'How are you?'
