Odd.  Now, mailx (command-line mail client) sees a period on a line by
itself as the end of your message, so maybe this is a related issue?

Anyway, this message has a period in the first column on the next line,
followed by my closing.  If you don't see "Ben" on the last line, it is
truncated.  If you do, I suspect the fault is with kmail, not the
mailing list software or the nslug mail server.
