    Pegasus Is Ignoring Ascii Formatting

    I send a message to a person.


    I look in the "copies to self" folder.


    The message I sent does not have NewLines where I put them.


    Instead, Pegasus is extending the lines with text from the next ones.


    This is absolutely ***NOT*** what I want.


    I want a new line to appear in the message when I press the [ENTER] key.


    What did I do wrong ?

    And this is connected to encryption in which way? And if it is: What kind of encryption are you talking about?

    On another note: Not displaying isn't the same as doesn't exist: You'd need to check the raw message data for telling whether there actually are linebreaks or not because there are several formatting options which may hide their existence: First of all if terminating a long line with a Return key may look like there actually isn't a line break depending on the line length used in the display window. Secondly it depends on the display options selected in your reader or preview windows (via context menu/right mouse click): If Wrap long lines or Reformat long lines are enabled Pegasus Mail may reflow the text. In general it's a good idea to insert two "Returns" if you want to reliably separate paragraphs from one another.
