I think it may have been the Outlook Express program on the Windows PC that sent the mail. I send a mailing from my Mac OS X box (same SIMS server) to that address and everything is fine, no bounce message. It's really funny, Yahoo announced a bounce, but all the mail was actually delivered...

Thanks, Bill.

That is actually a very helpful response to a real flaw in some sendmail configurations, notably the one that Sun shipped as default in Solaris 2.5...

Why SIMS would be poking that error detection is a puzzle. The root cause is 'stray linefeeds' in messages: a plain LF where CRLF is proper. SIMS shouldn't ever be doing that.
