If I have to set my line width to 42, your mail system is so broken
that I don't need to talk to it. 72 is reasonable, and and one should 
expect lines exceeding 80 characters to be wrapped. Anything under 68 is
unreasonably small. I, for example, am using 72 character lines in my
editor (vim).

Do a) with strchr(3) or memchr(3) by finding a colon and then check that
the next character is a space. If it's not, abort the message. The
code is:

if (!(ptr=(uint8_t *)memchr(line, ':', sizeof(line))) || ptr[1]!=' ')
	exit(1);
