mail() improperly escapes single and double quotes.  For example:   '   appears as   \'   (as when an apostrophe
is in the email text, like    " person's  automobile"  shows up as "person\'s automobile".  The email sent contains the escaped character with the \ in front of it instead of sending the character properly.

Sander,

this is a bug and has nothing to do with support. 
It shouldn't put escape characters in the e-mails.

I'm getting the same problem as carl-fox, and I'm running Win2k

Please respond with a fix.

Thanks
