I tried inserting lines with dots only in my mails, and to my great
surprise, no information was lost. I don't know why this happened, but
my theory is the following: since the RFC (can't recall the number; 722
or something) mandates that a mail must end with <CRLF>.<CRLF>, maybe
you could send mail that includes <CR>.<CR> or <LF>.<LF> and still get
newlines without losing data. Is this possible?
