Spaced out text box problem, concatenating.

57
Hi all

I'm not sure what or if there is an explanation for this but....
I have a html form, which contains textboxes.
The form sends this way: [HTML]form method="post" action="mailto:anemail@work.com?subject=form enctype="text/plain"[/HTML] so it's recieved in a simple email.

Here's the problem:
If the textbox contains spaces the resulting email seems to contatenate or warp with the next line!! It seems to wrap one extra line per space in the textbox!! If the textbox contains NO spaces it appears on it's own line.

This only seems to happen if the text box contains over 30 characters.

Am I the only person who has experienced this?? i cannot find ANYTHING about it on the net.

Any suggestions greatly appreciated.

Are you missing a quote above, after 'form'?
