Try

$headers  = "From: $from\n";                        //here missing /r
$headers .= "Content-type: text/html\r\n";

aparently outlook doesn't like /r only on the last header line

http://www.bigresource.com/Tracker/Track-php-Ho18Kdzs/


if it doesn't work, try a more complex header

$headers = 'Content-Type: text/html; charset="iso-8859-1"' . "\n";
$headers .= 'MIME-Version: 1.0' . "\n";
$headers .= 'From:  <email@email.com>' . "\n";
$headers .= 'To: email@email.com' . "\n";
$headers .= 'Reply-To: email@email.com'. "\r\n";
