I would try to find an error pattern, maybe by looking into messages 
encoding. Are all the generated messages using the same character 
encoding (us-ascii, iso-8859-1, utf-8...) or they differ?

I'm more inclined in thinking MUA (or any script that is generating the 
messages) being the guilty here.
