This probably should be on PHP-General, since it isn't related to databases.

That said and not having seen the code, I'm wondering if the user may be
submitting the form from a Macintosh computer which uses carriage returns as
end of line characters.  If that were the case, they might not show up in a
windows email client as line breaks.

You might want to convert all line breaks to Windows style CRLF, that is
"\r\n".  It may be that CRLF is required by one of the email RFCs.

Something like:

    $text = str_replace("\r\n","\n",$text); // windows to unix
    $text = str_replace("\r","\n",$text); // mac to unix
    $text = str_replace("\n","\r\n",$text); // all to windows
