When mailing a long text without any space or such, mailing on Linux gives an unexpected exclamation mark after every 1000 chars or so. This behavoir does not occour on Windows.

Reproduce code:
  $mail = "<enter_Email_Here>";
  for ($i=0;$i<10000;$i++) {
    $longtext .= "a";

      $testmail = "PHP Mail Bug Test\r\n"
      ."Content-Type: text/plain\r\n"
      ."\r\nPHP Mail Bug Test\r\n\r\n"
      ."Content-Type: text/html;\r\n"
      ."        name=\"PHP Mail Bug Test.html\"\r\n"
      ."Content-Disposition: attachment;\r\n"
      ."        filename=\"PHP Mail Bug Test.html\"\r\n\r\n"

       "From: $mail\r\n"
      ."Reply-To: $mail\r\n"
      ."Return-Path: $mail\r\n"
      ."X-Mailer: PHP Mail Bug Test\r\n"
      ."MIME-Version: 1.0\r\n"
      ."Content-Type: multipart/mixed;\r\n"
      ."        boundary=\"----_=_NextPart_PHP_SPECIAL_000\"\r\n");


Expected result:
A long line with 10000 a's

Actual result:
After 1000 chars, he gives a ! (exclamation mark) without any given reason.

Btw, does not occour when you put in a \r\n every 100 chars or something. Only with a long list of non-breaking chars.

Sorry, but your problem does not imply a bug in PHP itself.  For a
list of more appropriate places to ask for help using PHP, please
visit as this bug system is not the
appropriate forum for asking support questions. 

Thank you for your interest in PHP.

That's your MTA's issue.
