The text field only has newlines (\n) not breaks.

For starters, in the text area tag, you need wrap="virtual":

<TEXTAREA name="mailingAddress" wrap="virtual" rows="6"

Then instead of
    print "$mailingAddress<br>";
    print nl2br($mailingAddress)."<br>";
... which converts all new lines (\n) into breaks (<br />)
