I'm getting problems receiving email with long MIME/Base64 subject lines.
That's why I tested with raw SMTP to send a long subject line to myself.

I don't think that's happening, though. My email is on an IMAP server,
so I just fired up Thunderbird and the problem subject lines look fine
with it, and if I do View -> Message Source, the subject line is *not*
broken into multiple lines.
And if I use our webmail client, the subject lines are correctly decoded
So, only alpine is choking on these subject lines...
