explanation for attachments disappearing

In old SMTP, a line with only one character
-being that sole character a dot- conventionally
signals the end of the message.

Amavis (or postfix, I am not sure) seems to
obey that, and truncates the message at that point.

Whatever comes after, gets lost.
Attachments and all.

This could explain similar phenomena experienced by
other people with the same setup :

Debian Squeeze with postfix 2.7.1-1
and Amavis vers. 1:2.6.4-3

I write to this list to :

- ask users to experiment with it
- ask for a way to contact amavis developers

Please answer with Cc. to juanjo at eurogaran.com
since I am not subscribed to this list.

Thank you.
