The mail() function does not seem to work
I am using PHP 4.1.0 under apache.

This type of script not function:

mail("", "PHP Mail test", "Line 1\nLine 2\nLine 3");

but if i change in this

mail("", "PHP Mail test", "Line 1\r\nLine 2\r\nLine 3");

No problem append..
In php 4.0.6 no problem!

I have seen something similar, but it turned out to be nothing at all PHP releated.  The \n vs. \r\n makes the difference to some mail transports, and they will reject mail with plain LF characters.  That is to say, if you are using \n and NOT \r\n, it will work for SOME destination email addresses but not others and it is entirely dependent on if you have a picky (that is, adhering to standards) or loose (non-standard but common) mail transport in between you and the email address you are sending to.
