I've a very interesting email:

while the deliver-script and lmtp-deliver fails to deliver the email,
the cyrus-mailer coming with sendmail does not. Emails like this come
to our server one or two times a week.

I'd like to know whats actually wrong with the email (deliver
complains "Message contains invalid header") and if there is a way to
run lmtp-deliver in a more "tolerant" way like the
sendmail-cyrus-mailer seems to do ...

thnx a lot,

the mail (per-user information replaced with xxx without changing
length of text)
