      The First mail generated by netcat will stuck in error queue.

      220 ciphermail ESMTP CipherMail
      HELO test
      250 ciphermail
      MAIL FROM: <test@heinlein-support.de>
      250 2.1.0 Ok
      RCPT TO: <a.helwig@heinlein-support.de>
      250 2.1.5 Ok
      DATA
      354 End data with <CR><LF>.<CR><LF>
      Subject: testmail
      Content-Transfer-Encoding: =?utf-8?Q?8bit?=

      test
      .
      250 2.0.0 Ok: queued as F247E121

      If i fix the transfer Encoding the mail goes trough the MPA and is signed.

      220 ciphermail ESMTP CipherMail
      HELO test
      250 ciphermail
      MAIL FROM: <test@heinlein-support.de>
      250 2.1.0 Ok
      RCPT TO: <a.helwig@heinlein-support.de>
      250 2.1.5 Ok
      DATA
      354 End data with <CR><LF>.<CR><LF>
      Subject: testmail
      Content-Transfer-Encoding: 8bit

      test
      .
      250 2.0.0 Ok: queued as 72B10121

      So the Problem occured by Broken header
      "Content-Transfer-Encoding: =?utf-8?Q?8bit?="

      If i fix this it goes trough the MPA.

      In the MPA-Error queue i just get
      Name: Mail1454338560304-4238
      State: error
      size: 611
      Error Message: " "

      So not a real error message and i had to digg around a bit to find this
      issue.
      Not sure if it is a ciphermail bug, but better error handling or error
      message would be great.
