Here is as attachement a diff of two maildir files : the one in the sent 
folder, and the one received in an external domain.
I believe a big part of the problem is located in these lines of the

Do you think dovecot is altering the mail, or the problem is located 
inside our smtp server ?
(this problem happen with any remote domain.)
