Outlook not reading all the headers HTML becomes Plain Text

I have a php script that has always sent me html emails.  I just changed email servers and now the html is sent in plain text with part of the headers in the message.  The headers look like this:
From: admin@adminedit.net
Return-Path: admin@adminedit.net
Reply-To: admin@adminedit.net
MIME-Version: 1.0
Content-type: text/html; charset=iso-8859-1
X-Mailer: PHP/5.2.4

Whe I view the headers in outlook they stop at "Mine-Version: 1.0"
The email message then starts with:
Content-type: text/html; charset=iso-8859-1
X-Mailer: PHP/5.2.4

<h3 align="center">Order has been received
~~~~ rest of email taken out~~~~~

Why is this happening?  Any Ideas on how to fix.

Can you make 100% sure that the line termination for MIME-Version: 1.0 is \r\n and not just \n or \r.

Can you show the code you are using to generate the email?

Here is a set of my headers that Outlook 2003 shows for SMTP sourced email I generate.

I'm using PHP5 with htmlmimemail5 from phpguru.org as my mail class (rather than phpmailer simply because I came across this one first - nothing at all against phpmailer).

Ok, mine is quite complex with related and alternative entries as well as attachments.

The Headers are sent from PHP like this:

            $headers = 'From: support@neonwolfstudios.com' . "\r\n" .
                  'Return-Path: support@neonwolfstudios.com' . "\r\n" .
                  'Reply-To:support@neonwolfstudios.com' . "\r\n" .
                  'MIME-Version: 1.0' . "\r\n" .
                  'Content-type: text/html; charset=iso-8859-1' . "\r\n" .
                  'X-Mailer: PHP/' . phpversion();

Why You Should Analyze Threat Actor TTPs

After years of analyzing threat actor behavior, it’s become clear that at any given time there are specific tactics, techniques, and procedures (TTPs) that are particularly prevalent. By analyzing and understanding these TTPs, you can dramatically enhance your security program.

I tried to switch the code around:

            $headers = 'From: support@neonwolfstudios.com' . "\r\n" .
                  'Return-Path: support@neonwolfstudios.com' . "\r\n" .
                  'Reply-To:support@neonwolfstudios.com' . "\r\n" .
                  'Content-type: text/html; charset=iso-8859-1' . "\r\n" .
                  'MIME-Version: 1.0' . "\r\n" .
                  'X-Mailer: PHP/' . phpversion();

With this code it stops after the Content-type. It seems that it will only accept 4 header lines?

What is the total length of the headers at that point?

What mailer are you using? PHP's built-in mail() command or a class?

I wonder if $headers has a limit of 128 (ish) characters.

Can you show more code? Especially on the creation of the mail() call.
