This seems to be an Exchange / Outlook problem
Using web mail before the message is picked up by exchange it looks fine
once picked up and viewed in outlook 2 char are missing

[checked on 2 diffrent servers and domains using exchange and outlook]

In webmail:
Send HTML email = Yes
Do you Play = 123456
Address 1 = 3733
Address 2 City = Spring Valley
state/province = CA

in Outlook:
Send HTML email =es
Do you Play =23456
Address 1 =733
Address 2 City =pring Valley
state/province =A

Also looked at hex view and seems to be no special char other than \r vs \r\n

It was 2 letters the space and first char of the attrib

I searched the *.php files and found the output format stmt with " = " in it I changed it to " is:" and the messages came through correctly. This is very strange bug in outlook

I know this is not a PHPList problem but I wounder if any one else has seen this type of problem?

BTW if the message is fowarded by the web mail it is correct MS needs to look at this

Thanks for digging deeper and finding the underlying problem. These kind of things are always hard to trace. Now the issue is, what to do. Do we think Outlook is used so much that we change phplist to accomodate it's bugs, or do we think sod it change to a better email reader. You tell me :-)

I guess in this case changing = to : is actually quite easy and won't bother anyone, so I'll add it to 2.9.5
