Your browser probably timed out. Try using flush() after the echo in the 
loop. You may also encounter PHP timeout - take a look at 
set_time_limit() if you bump into that.

What I don't understand is why you received no mail - are you sure your 
mail() syntax is correct? You should try a third test:
(1) Change the loop condition so it only loops once;
(2) Use the uncommented mail() version;

See if you get any mail / error messages...
