Well, no, those are the first 3 lines of the bad file itself, which I presume are transcriptions of lines received during the SMTP connection; the problem is that CGP was unable to process the third line.  Cheers,

  Is this really the first few lines of the message's header?
  If so, the first three lines are invalid. Then there is an empty line
which indicates the start of the actual message which, in this case,
appears to be the rest of the header. Quite mangled all around.
  The line length limit for email is 1000 octets, including the CR-LF at
the end. However, opayq seems to found a way to create an invalid
address without exceeding that limit, as Gib noted.
