Perhaps the following background information will help.

Headers repeating at the end of the body is indicative of unix line
endings instead of cr-lf in the message supplied to libesmtp, so it is
worth checking this.

Balsa uses a GMime CRLF filter to convert \n to cr-lf, so that shouldn't be an issue with any message passed from Balsa to libesmtp.  The filter has an option to dot-stuff any line beginning with '.', which Balsa does /not/ use, relying instead on libesmtp.

Since the issue arises only with one server, it seems more likely that their software confuses itself, perhaps by decoding the dot-stuffing and only later checking for the terminating line.  If that's the case, it's not clear how Balsa can set up a message so that it could never be misread.
