Package: dspam
Version: 3.10.1+dfsg-3~bpo60+1
Severity: critical

dspam sends '530 5.2.0 Message is empty. Aborting.' while receiving 
incorrect spam message with long-long line, for example with length 
about 300K bytes:

Content-Type: application/octet-stream; name="Pricediler.xls"
Content-Transfer-Encoding: base64
Content-Disposition: attachment

length of the line is about 300K bytes)

It causes MTA (exim in my case) to fail with 'Broken pipe' message for 
dspam router and use retries to send other emails to other recepients, 
so messages are deferred and delivered with delay.
