If the message box is set to multi-line mode, then pressing the return key simply adds another line.

On my MacBook, to get the multi-line message box to execute, you press 'Fn+Return'. The 'Fn' (Function) key is usually located to the left of your left Control key. On Mac laptops, the Fn key triggers several 'alternative' functions on some of the standard keys: Fn+Return does 'Enter', Fn+Delete does forward delete.

I hope this helps!
