Sounds like you'd be safe to try it then :-)
#define LINE_LENGTH 72
Should solve Andre's chopped sample he posted that folded after 75.
[Speaking as one end consumer], I'd be happy if you tried.
Andre may also need to get get his admins to turn off their conversion
to "quoted printable... Or
If he can't, I think there's a way in sendmail on local receive to
convert "quoted printable" back to straight 8 bit ?, (I've been
meaning to find time to look as I get "quoted printable" text mail
from MS using friends that's a pain to edit with vi).
