A possible perl solution is removing some of the newlines, like:

s/\n{3,}/\n\n/g;

which will replace three or more newlines in a row with two (two to preserve double-spacing of paragraphs).

[shmem]: same with undef as last element
[msh210]: oh, good point. It's the best kind of correct
[shmem]: msh210: but I'd not call it a lie outright. That's when you do know the truth.
[msh210]: I don't have sendmail (I'm on MS Windows), so does one of you think you can report the bug?
[shmem]: msh210: 'tis about time to tell the sad truth to perl5porters - via perlbug
[msh210]: probably whoever wrote that actually knows the truth
[shmem]: msh210: you can save the perlbug text in a file and send that via your mail agent of choice
[msh210]: hm, okay, I'll try, thanks
[shmem]: ...not as an attachment, it's probably better to c&p that into the mail body
