convert txt to epub, no new line formatting

Hello,

I use the calibre ebook-convert.exe to convert my txt files to epub for use on a bebook.

But the conversion seems to ignore 'paragraphs'.

If the txt is like this:

-------
First sentence [new line]
Second sentence ....[new line]
-------

I want it in epub also to be:

-------
First sentence.
Second sentence.
-------

But I get:
-------
First sentence. Second sentence.
-------

I thought I was clever and tried to modify the txt to look like this:

-------
First sentence [new line]
[new line]
Second sentence ....[new line]
-------

But now the epub ouotput will also have that empty line:

-------
First sentence.

Second sentence.
-------

What is the solution to this??
Thanks for any help.
