[New-bugs-announce] [issue5525] Problem with email.MIME* library, using wrong new line

New submission from Luca clementi <luca.clementi at gmail.com>:

I'm running Python 2.5.2 under Ubuntu 8.10.

In the file email/generator.py from the core library at line 228 in the
function _handle_multipart()
            # delimiter transport-padding CRLF
            print >> self._fp, '\n--' + boundary
but if this function is run under Unix it print only the LF and not the
CRLF as by required by the standard. 

My guess is that this error is also in other part of the library.
SMTP (as HTTP) requires CRLF as new line, by standard, while I see that
at the beginning of the generator.py
NL = '\n'

Am I missing something?
