Hi Timo,

Yes, your patch got it right! The 

| Your message was automatically rejected by Dovecot Mail Delivery Agent.
| The following reason was given:
| Quota exceeded

mail passes Spamassassin even when the original mail is MIME-encoded. No
bad-headers anymore. Thanks!


PS. It might be nice if the original subject is used instead of
"Automatically rejected mail", but that's a detail.

PPS. Your advice not to use relative paths in maildir helped. No more open
failures when deliver wants to write the .dovecot.lda-dupes file.
