Does anyone know why mail sent through sendmail can vary

by 3 bytes?

When using mutt to send mail to the local sendmail daemon,

the maillog shows the size varying by 3 bytes. The

attachment and the body of the message remain the same

size.

This question seems silly but it is actually critically

important that I find a way to explain the variance.

The server is running:
Red Hat Linux release 7.3
kernel-smp-2.4.18-27.7.x
mutt-1.2.5.1-1
sendmail-8.11.6-23.73

Thanks in advance for your help.

Sincerely,
Mitch
