Thanks Mike. Turning off word wrap solved the problem.

That sounds as though something, probably your mail client, is wrapping
TO: line because it sees it as just another too-long line of text.
Try either turning off automatic line wrapping in your client or keep
TO: line below the line-length limit by wrapping it manually -- and if
you do the latter, remember that a continuation of a mail header line
must start with whitespace to prevent it from being misinterpreted as
a new header. It'd look like:
approved: <majordomo password>
TO: <your-list@your-domain>, <some-long-address@some-other-domain>,
FROM: <original sender>
SUBJECT: <original subject line>
CC: <original cc list>
If the CC: line is long then do the same thing there.
