address was given to us by one of our customers. If

you did not signup to be a member, please send an

email to ' . STORE_OWNER_EMAIL_ADDRESS . '.' . "\n");



When I change the text to what I want it to say the it will not send the email to the new account. If I change it back to the original it will work then....

This is a long shot, but something similar has happened to me in the past.


Depending on which program or method you use to edit your files.


Some editors create new lines (as your pasted code shows). I found that PHP didn't always like adding text strings to e-mails which span more that one line.


Try editing the line you want to edit, and putting it all on one line.


Hope it works, I know it is a long shot.
