I've got an ASP script that processes the form and sends the email using CDOSYS. When the email arrives, the (hard) carriage-returns entered by the user are gone. It's all one block of text with no blank lines. I've tried a few different things with the wrap="" parameter of the textarea, and by REPLACE()-ing "\n" with Chr(10) in the ASP script, but all to no avail. Does anybody here know the best way to get hard returns entered into a text field to translate into vbCrLf's in an ASP script?
