FYI, WebCT (Campus Edition) also triggers this problem.
If an instructor has their WebCT mail forwarded to their Cyrus account,
and a student posts a message containing a huge attachment within WebCT
for that instructor, upon delivery to Cyrus that message will blow up as
you describe. I found out that WebCT encoded such attachments as one
long line and not nicely folded text like most clients do. I reported
the problem to them and they said it would be addressed in some future
release, but don't know when.
