SMTPTransport is not performing byte-stuffing and newline canonicalization on message data.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

         Key: GERONIMO-1673
         URL: http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/GERONIMO-1673
     Project: Geronimo
        Type: Bug
  Components: mail  
    Versions: 1.x    
    Reporter: Rick McGuire
 Attachments: GERONIMO-1673.patch

The MIME spec requires that all message line breaks be converted into proper CRLF sequence
(linebreak canonicalization) and that any period at the beginning of a line be "byte-stuffed"
(two periods written out instead of one).  The current SMTPTransport is just takes the message
data as is.  The byte-stuffing is particularly important, since this prevents periods within
the message from being mistaken with the DATA command terminator string.  This fault can cause
message truncation.
