The "^M's" come from Sendmail, which dumps the message exactly as it
was received.  The SMTP RFC specifies that lines must end with CRLF,
which is ^M^J.

I'm surprised Razor is sensitive to line endings.  You can get rid of
them with some Perl code, I suppose:

open(IN, "<INPUTMSG");
open(OUT, ">RAZORMSG");
while(<IN>) {
    $_ =~ tr/\015//d;
    print OUT;

and then submit RAZORMSG to Razor (and check RAZORMSG against Razor!)
