sendmail(8) can split lines that are too long in this manner.  The L=
parameter in the mailer definition can be altered to lengthen it but
that's not wise;  it's only *your* sendmail that's being corrupted, the
next one down the line still won't be happy and you don't control that.

If you really need the long lines to reach the other party then generate
a MIME email, e.g. quoted-printable.

Cheers, Ralph.
