      Summary

      Send Mail strips out carriage returns and sends one big paragraph

      Product

      FileMaker Pro

      Version

      12v3

      Operating system version

      OS X 10.7.5

      Description of the issue

      Send Mail strips out carriage returns from the body field and sends the body as one great big paragraph with no carriage returns anywhere.


      Tested this in FileMaker 11 - works perfectly fine, however does not work in FM12.

      Steps to reproduce the problem

      Create a new field, type in text into the field, create several lines of text (separated with a carriage return).

      Create new script with 'Send Mail' script step. Set the new field for the message body.

      Send the message.

      Expected result

      The email should have carriage returns separating the multiple paragraphs.

      Actual result

      No carriage returns in the email at all - one large paragraph.

      Configuration information

      Running Entourage 2008 - version 12.3.6.

      I don't think this is an Entourage problem since it works on FM11 and not FM12.

      Workaround

      Have not yet worked one out.
