thanks for your reply, i am really glad the problem doesn't origin in my 

I share Jordi's view and it would be great to find the bugfix in the official 
debian repositories. So thank you for your efforts in advance, Jordi.

And because there is no need right now to migrate our servers running those 
scripts to debian 10, i will migrate the other servers first in hope the bugfix 
is out afterwards. Therefore i wouldn't try to recompile mailutils yet. If i 
have to do that in the future and need help, i will contact you, Sergey. Thanks 
for that, too.

Best regards

This looks like something that would get accepted by the Debian release
managers as an "high impact" bugfix for stable.

I'll look into it.
