Hi I am trying to do a code change in a program that creates the mail format and sends it to the CICS spool for mailing that. When I changed the variable size, the mail format got scrwed up and said, extra line breaks in the mail are removed when I opened the mail in my Outlook. when I right clicked on the message and seleceted "add extra line breaks" it turned in the right format.

I want the default mail format to be correct. I should not have add extra line breaks everytime.

Need suggestion in this.

Thanks,
Rathnakar.

Remove and add are a function of the email program you are reading your email with. Add more blank lines in the COBOL program and they too will get removed.
Try making them not entirely empty and maybe they won't get removed.

Hello,

Think about why you "changed the varaible size". Look at the content of the original e-mail content, then look at the new and decide how to accomodate the required formatting.

If the format once worked, you should be able to "enhance" it retaing proper formatting.
