This is deliberate. The bare LF is illegal per standards; Exim is doing its

to be in that mode. You need to be *consistent* with your input.

Exim is aimed at Unix-based systems. Line endings for files and stdio are
Feeding a file with CRLF-endings into stdin is A Bad Move.
On the other hand, SMTP standards for network transmission use "CRLF" - so Exim
(and any MTA on a Unix) has to translate. Much fun ensues.
