A WILD guess as to PART of what's causing it, . . . 
It may be defaulting to HTML.
Is there a setting for HTML/plain-text?  (if so, it might still not 
process plain-text properly; many "developers" consider it to be beneath 
them to include real plain-text support)

Many/most html processors ignore CRLF, considering that to be merely 
composing white-space, not part of the intended result.

When I was first trying to create raw HTML for my crude websites, I found 
that whatever whitespace I put into my raaw HTML was ignored, and I had 
to force breaks, extra space, tabs, etc.

Try putting in <br>  (less than, b r , greater than)
See whether it gives us that literally, or puts in a break.

Is the mail client sending directly, or is it relaying it through 
something else?
