Package: reportbug
Version: 6.6.1

--- Please enter the report below this line. ---

a year after, and reportbug is still losing complete reports, when smtp-part fails! how ironical!
still no backup copy of the text…
and IMHO, losing data is more severe than normal. 

that happened on a fresh debootstrapped jessie, with no exim4/postfix installed automatically.
so, out of the box, this is not able to work.

cheers & seasonal greetings
