Try flushing the output before you close the mail connection like so:

It's also a good idea to put the close statemants in a finally block to ensure that they get closed not matter what happens. This might do the trick. Otherwise, try setting the context type to "text/plain". Hope this helps

Hello Eric,

Try to delete the < & > from your From: part. See if that works.

Mike.
 
If you send is by car it's a shipment, but if by ship it's cargo. This tiny ad told me:
