My first idea would be that somehow one of the lines in the
57k message began with a '.', which would cause truncation with some
mailers. As I received the complete message here (or at least, I think
it was complete), our mailer doesn't seem affected by it (sendmail 8.7.5)...
I have a copy of it still, so will scan through the file and see
if I can see anything gone amiss...
