Checking on the error in question, (Outlook "CR" vulnerability), something 
is slipping in a naked <cr> character into the message header. Check all 
your configs for one of them. Also, is there a '\r' in there somewhere? 

Python question- if you use a backslash at the end of a line in a string
literal, can that bury a <cr> in the text?

Are you using a MAC, BTW? (Uses <cr> as EOL character.)

Reading spamalert's "support" page, I'm not surprised. It's more of a 
"no support" page...
