A good thing to know when send message using SMTP, a line can not be longer
than 76 characters. A long line need to be encoded with quoted printable. I
think you probably already know about this. Some servers can take a very long
line but not all. The right thing to do is at the sent time make sure each line
is not no longer than 76 chars if they are either use the base64 encoding or
quoted printable.

After checking, I saw that these cases were actually covered so this wasn't a
bug.

Since Rich opened this against himself and marked this bug invalid, I'll mark it
verified as invalid.
