Netscape mail server removes white-space at the start of the subject field and 
they won't accept a bug report about it.

Postfix and Qmail correctly preserved all combinations of random ASCII data in 
the subject as of my last tests with Postal/rabid.

Postal/rabid do MD5 checks on message body and selected header fields 
(including Subject).  Check how your mail server performs...
