RE: Unix output formatting

I have a script that does the following:

 

###########################################################

echo "EXPORT FOR $DBNAME" > $LOGFILE

echo "----------------------------------------------------" >> $LOGFILE

echo Todays date is ......................: $DATESTR      >> $LOGFILE

echo The Log File for Today is ...........: $LOGFILE      >> $LOGFILE

echo The Path for Oracle Home is .........: $ORACLE_HOME  >> $LOGFILE

#echo The Oracle Sid is ...................: $ORACLE_SID   >> $LOGFILE

echo "\n"

echo The hostname is .....................: $HNAME        >> $LOGFILE

echo "\n"

echo The DBNAME is .......................: $DBNAME       >> $LOGFILE

echo "----------------------------------------------------" >> $LOGFILE

echo Begin the export process at .........: `date` >> $LOGFILE

echo

 

The output in Unix lines up nicely:

 

EXPORT FOR remedy

----------------------------------------------------

Todays date is ......................: 20060320

The Log File for Today is ...........:
/backup/exports/remedy_export.log_2006032

0

The Path for Oracle Home is .........: /oracle/app/oracle/product/10.2.0

The hostname is .....................: test

The DBNAME is .......................: remedy

----------------------------------------------------

Begin the export process at .........: Mon Mar 20 16:35:28 EST 2006

**** EXPORT SUCCESS ****

 

However, when the output is mailed it is off:

 

EXPORT FOR remedy

----------------------------------------------------

Todays date is ......................: 20060320

The Log File for Today is ...........:
/backup/exports/remedy_export.log_20060320

The Path for Oracle Home is .........: /oracle/app/oracle/product/10.2.0
The hostname is .....................: test The DBNAME is
.......................: remedy

----------------------------------------------------

Begin the export process at .........: Mon Mar 20 16:35:28 EST 2006

**** EXPORT SUCCESS ****

 

Any suggestions on how I can make sure "the hostname" and The DBNAME are
on separate lines?
