PHPMailer + html email issue (" displays as \\")

This is a strange one. When I send an email containing the " character in the body, its is displayed as \" when the email arrives. For the ’ character, its displayed as \’ .

Here is my code

$mail = new PHPMailer();  
 $mail->IsSMTP();  // telling the class to use SMTP  
 $mail->Host     = "localhost"; // SMTP server  
 $mail->From     = "********";  
 $mail->FromName     = "********";  
 $mail->Subject  = $subject;  
 $mail->Body     = $message;  
 $mail->WordWrap = 50;  

This all looks ok?

Anybody got any ideas?

Thanks in advance.

Use stripslashes for your message and subject

Thanks for that Cerium. Simple.
