I have developed a CMS and when user forgets his/her password / the system will generate a new random password and send it to the user through email but when i open the email it automatically strip some character from my email body replacing them with (=).

This is the email after its sent you can see the messed up parts in bold

Dear Noor Shirzai This Email was se=t to you in order to inform you that your Password has be=n reset. Bellow is your New Password : Your Username is : mohib Your New Pas=word is : IOODiGhcYYrL Please change your <=trong> New Password </strong> as soon as you login to the system in order to=avoid any security issues.

Note : when i send this with Pure PHP mail function it works fine.

try changing your newline and crlf parameters to
"\r\n", in double quotes.
