If you try to mail a string such as 

Version: GnuPG v1.0.6 (MingW32)
Comment: For info see


With a pgp signature, it seems to be missing 1 character of the first line of the signature, breaking it.  This worked flawslessly with 4.3.2.  When we upgraded yesterday, this started happening.  I've spent several hours on this and it would appear that the mail() function is at fault.

Reproduce code:
Mail a pgp signed sig such as in the desciption and check the sig before and after sending.  My messages are about 1,220 bytes in length on average with the sig at the bottom

The code I'm usnig is
				$apptext=fread($domapp,filesize("uk_apps\\$appname". "_modify.asc"));
						mail("$recipient", "MODIFY", "$apptext",
							"From: <>\r\nMessage-Id: <" . time() . ">\r\nReply-To: <>\r\nX-Mailer: PHP/" . phpversion());	

Expected result:
It to send the mail with the string as supplied.

Just to confirm I have re-installed php 4.3.2 and the problem has gone away...

Please do not submit the same bug more than once. An existing
bug report already describes this very problem. Even if you feel
that your issue is somewhat different, the resolution is likely
to be the same. Because of this, we hope you add your comments
to the existing bug instead.

Thank you for your interest in PHP.
