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();

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.
