A lot depends on who is hosting the email. Some sites put limit on the size of emails to prevent spam killing the bandwidth. This usually is only a problem when you are adding attachments. This may be a case where it did send the entire email but due to the limits of the interface application it cannot display everything back as entered. There are unknown variables like which email service and size of the email content to give a more specific answer.
