I've tried it going to Postfix and Lotus Notes, and both seem to be OK with
not putting in a blank line. Looking at the raw email, it puts the Subject
line among the other headers and separates the body from the headers with a
blank line. It looks like maybe mailers are smart enough to interpret the
first non-header as the start of the body?
A blank line wouldn't hurt, though, and may be necessary for some mailers.
