Hi David,

I don't know if this can be related to the fact that on Unix (I don't 
know if this is in one of the RFCXXX)
to indicate the end of an email you start a line with a dot "."

So want I think is appening is the email package in sb_filter see your 
mail and forward everything up to a line
starting with a dot "."
