    Default exclamation marks and extra spaces

    Hi, I'm trying to get my HTML template to display properly. I have tried a few versions now. I get random exclamation marks and spaces or styles are messed up. I am at the point where my template is really simple and it still messes up. I have got everything else working. Thanks!

    The template is just a table with strong tags at the moment and it still gives me inconsistant results. Eg. exclamation marks, or styles going past the ending tags. I'm using the newest formmail.php

    When formmail sends the HTML email, it seems to be adding line breaks or spaces. For example, I had a result come back that said "$ comment_here" instead of the actual value because it added that space in there. It's probably whats also screwing up some of my styles. Any ideas to what is causing this? Any help is appreciated.

    u don't actually have any $fieldnames in ur template - so ur not grabbing any field values and putting them in the template

    in any case, i think u have a broken server

    I have used a plain text template for now and it works fine. I did have $fieldnames in the HTML template and had no problem receiving the info. It's was just the added spaces or linebreaks I was concerned about as it is breaking styles and some times variables as the space will land in a variable name. The HTML template looked fine when previewed in a browser.
