Similar question: "How to distinguish \r\n being a part of the real data
from \r\n being a part of CRNL?"

Answer to both: no way to do that. Email was not designed to be
a binary-transparent protocol. That's why uuenciode and base64
were invented.

Therefore stripping all \r which are directly followed by \n
is not going to create problems.
