Description: ------------ This is actually not a bug... Sometimes the RFC2822s absolute max line length (998) is not respected, which Net_NNTP doesn't like. There should be a variable to choose between strict and loose line validation...

To me this is a bug. This is directly from RFC 2822 4.: "The fact that a particular form does not appear in any section of this document is not justification for computer programs to crash or for malformed data to be irretrievably lost by any implementation. To repeat an example, though this document requires lines in messages to be no longer than 998 characters, silently discarding the 999th and subsequent characters in a line without warning would still be bad behavior for an implementation. It is up to the implementation to deal with messages robustly."
