Disregard, we updated our beta server DATA block receiver and the code
to undot the leading dot (per section 4.5.2 ) was left out.

must be missing something here. I noticed two MUAs, Outlook and
Thunderbird adding extra dots for lines I would not expect it would.
For testing, I sent a simple text message with these five lines only:
At my receiver, a socket read DATA block dump showed the MUAs sending
an extra dot on each line:
. <-- expected <CRLF>.<CRLF> terminator
Why? Is that correct?
What caught my eye was an intermediary also adding extra dots, in this
case, a message I set to a list had a line beginning with:
... blah, blah
But it showed up here with two extra dots:
..... blah, blah
So when I begin testing why, I noticed the MUA was adding one extra
and the intermediary adding one extra itself.
Is this normal?
