Re: [Nmh-workers] NMH long lines

Hi Ken,
        Apologies for the vagueness.  By "current one" I'm referring to
our existing X400 gateway accessed via Clearswift MTA software, with
SMTP conversion done by a third party.

  Our belief now is that at some point in that submission processes the
lines are split with CR/LF under the Clearswift route, but NMH uses an
exclamation mark as the line delimiter and it's this we'd like to amend.

  I'm just talking message body text here as well - header lines are
well within limits.

When you say "the current one" ... what exactly do you mean?  Because
a quick glance at the revision history leads me to believe that older
versions of nmh had a much shorter line length.

And do you want 998 character limits for _header lines_, or just the
message body?
