Multi-line bodies using asp.net and mailmessage

I'm having web visitors fill out a form, and then want to email the data from that form to someone else.    My problem is that I can only make the body so long before the message doesn't get sent.  I'm figuring there must be some sort of string size limit to the body.  Can anyone tell me how I can load a large amount of text on the body
Dim eMessage As New MailMessage()
        eMessage.From = New System.Net.Mail.MailAddress(TextBoxEmail.Text)
        eMessage.To.Add(New System.Net.Mail.MailAddress("randy@tradewinds-software.com"))
        eMessage.Subject = "Lava Lava Registration Form"
        eMessage.Body = "Name: " + TextBoxName.Text + Chr(13) + "Address: " + TextBoxAddress.Text + Chr(13) + "City:" + TextBoxCity.Text + Chr(13) + "State:" + TextBoxState.Text + Chr(13) + "Zip:" + TextBoxZip.Text + Chr(13) + "Home Telephone:" + TextBoxHomeTelephone.Text + Chr(13) + "Email:" + TextBoxEmail.Text + Chr(13) + "Date of Birth:" + TextBoxDateOfBirth.Text + Chr(13) + "Age:" + TextBoxAge.Text + Chr(13) + "Last Grade Completed:" + TextBoxLastGradeCompleted.Text + Chr(13) + "Emergency Contact:" + TextBoxEmergencyContact.Text + Chr(13) + "Mother:" + TextBoxMother.Text + Chr(13) + "Father:" + TextBoxFather.Text + Chr(13) + "Other:" + TextBoxOther.Text + Chr(13) + "Allergies and Medical Conditions:" + TextBoxAllergies.Text + Chr(13) + "Home Church:" + TextBoxHomeChurch.Text + Chr(13) + "Name of Special Friend:" + TextBoxNameOfFriend.Text + Chr(13)

there is newline contant for c#   if your email type is "plain"
 Environment.NewLine


if you are specifying mail type = html then u have to use "<br>" in the message for new line...

That still doesn't work.  It only works if I send a portion of it.
 

Here's the code that doesn't work
 
 
eMessage.IsBodyHtml = True 
eMessage.Body = "Name: " + TextBoxName.Text + "<br>" + "Address: " + TextBoxAddress.Text + "<br>" + "City:" + TextBoxCity.Text + "<br>" + "State:" + TextBoxState.Text + "<br>" + "Zip:" + TextBoxZip.Text + "<br>" + "Home Telephone:" + TextBoxHomeTelephone.Text + "<br>" + "Email:" + TextBoxEmail.Text + "<br>" + "Date of Birth:" + TextBoxDateOfBirth.Text + "<br>" + "Age:" + TextBoxAge.Text + "<br>" + "Last Grade Completed:" + TextBoxLastGradeCompleted.Text + "<br>" + "Emergency Contact:" + TextBoxEmergencyContact.Text + "<br>" + "Mother:" + TextBoxMother.Text + "<br>" + "Father:" + TextBoxFather.Text + "<br>" + "Other:" + TextBoxOther.Text + "<br>" + "Allergies and Medical Conditions:" + TextBoxAllergies.Text + "<br>" + "Home Church:" + TextBoxHomeChurch.Text + "<br>" + "Name of Special Friend:" + TextBoxNameOfFriend.Text + "<br>" 
 
Here's the code that does work, but doesn't contain everything I want to send
 
 eMessage.IsBodyHtml = True 
eMessage.Body = "Name: " + TextBoxName.Text + "<br>" + "Address: " + TextBoxAddress.Text
