Hmmm, I am unable to reproduce this. I dont have netcat installed, but I was doing it via telnet. Do you have an MSA running?

ns4% telnet smtp
Connected to localhost.
Escape character is '^]'.
220 ESMTP Sendmail 8.12.6/8.12.6; Tue, 19 Nov 2002 20:01:58 -0500 (EST)
MAIL From: <address@hidden>
250 2.1.0 <address@hidden>... Sender ok
RCPT To: postmaster
250 2.1.5 postmaster... Recipient ok
354 Enter mail, end with "." on a line by itself
250 2.0.0 gAK11mGg081693 Message accepted for delivery
221 2.0.0 closing connection
Connection closed by foreign host.

and all is well still

Yeah, but in that case sendmail aborts the message and spamass-milter
never gets to process it completely.  I have been creating 0-byte
messages with

print 'ehlo mymachine\nmail from:<address@hidden>\nrcpt to:<address@hidden>\ndata\n.\nquit\n' |
 nc dan smtp

(replace address@hidden with your own email address, and dan with your milter
server).  That submits a 0-byte message.  Make sure that the netcat
command connects to the machine actually doing the miltering, since if
it has to hop to another server, it'll most likely add a Received:
header, which makes the message more than 0 bytes long (the size
includes headers).
