If the output you get from the command:
ps -eo pid,ppid,cmd,%mem,%cpu --sort=-%mem | head

is in the format you want, then the likely cause of your problem is the utility you are using to read the mail that has been sent to you.

What utility (or utilities) are you using to read your mail?

What operating system(s) is(are) running on the system(s) where you read your mail?

The unquoted echo arguments are broken into space-separated words.
As stated before, use
ps -eo pid,ppid,cmd,%mem,%cpu --sort=-%mem | head | mailx ...

(without echo ` `)
