Problem forwarding email

Post by rjhenn » Fri Apr 06, 2018 1:28 am

I get spam that I try to report, but I get an error:
An error occurred while sending mail. The mail server responded: Line length exceeded. See RFC 2821 #4.5.3.1.. Please check the message and try again.

Is there any way around this? The email seems to be based on a form, and I can't edit that. Using Thunderbird.

Probably no line breaks in the body of the message, if it came from a form it's probably html and the line breaks don't show up if you send as text.

I don't bother reporting spam, I just mark it and send it to Trash. If you really want to you could set Tbird to send as html and see if it goes.
