That may be because your SMTP server doesn't reject mail with lines>998 bytes.

What I have done is compare the original mail with the one "stuck" in the Queue
folder after forwarding. The original mail is (horrible) HTML,but this is an
extract from it, and is three lines long:

<p class=3D"MsoNormal">Just thought I would drop you an email, I am now wor=
king with  companies  in your area doing regular confidential shr=

The same section from the queued mail is one line long:

<p class="MsoNormal">Just thought I would drop you an email, I am now working
with  companies  in your area doing regular confidential

That particular line doesn't exceed the 998 byte count, but it's easy to see
how it could.

To save the mails, I'm right-clicking on the message/rfc822 part and saving.
I'm comparing the pre- and post-forwarded versions with meld (under Linux),
which makes it a little easier to see than my preferred vimdiff.

You might want to compare the mail that is received after forwarding with the
un-forwarded original.

You are receiving this mail because:
You are the assignee for the bug.
