How to create newline in HPC Pack 2019 Custom Email Notification Script

George Li 0 Reputation points

I am trying to set up email notifications on my install of HPC Pack 2019. I can get the emails sent no problem. However the issue is in formatting.

Using the sample code from, I can get the output however there is no new line. Instead, it is one long string. I have tried every combination of `` r, r ```n, \n, \\n, environment new lines, HTML and rich text. Tab endings. Tab beginnings. Triple Space Endings and beginnings. \t endings. etc. I can only ever get the email body to print as a single long line one I check it in my outlook inbox. I have checked both my desktop outlook and the web outlook.

I am at a loss and would appreciate any help at all.

    Hi @George Li ,

    Please see if the HTML break tag <br /> adds a new line. This works when the mail body is sent as HTML.

    Best Regards,
