Observations on Carriage Return, Line Feed getting stripped out of Mail Messages

I've observed various posts here and elsewhere concerning CRLFs getting stripped out of programatically generated emails. This behavior is evident when the email is viewed using various versions of Microsoft Outlook.

Outlook displays a message like "Extra line breaks in this message were removed".

I've had the same problem for a long time, and found a solution quite by accident. Ensuring that each line ends with a period (.) prior to the CRLF characters appears to convince Outlook that there should indeed be a line break included.
