Who's file I/O routines?  Is the MTA mistaking the NUL for an EOF?  If
so, what MTA are you using Steph?  It should be easy to strip out the
NUL's by adding one line to SMTPDirect.py.  At the top of the function
deliver(), add something like the following (untested!):

    msgtext = string.replace(msgtext, '\0', '')

or, if you're using Python 2.x

    msgtext = msgtext.replace('\0', '')
