Mailx is adding a random "!" in the middle of my mail

I made a script that sends an email with one long line, line looks like this.


The mail has about 200 of those IDs in one line, each ID is separtated by ";".

The problem is that there is a random exclemation mark and it starts a new line in the middle of the of the body of the mail. like this below


I am not sure on whats happening or on how to fix it
# 2  
Show the code which you call mailx with please.
# 3  
print "$nidlist" | mailx -s "Automated checkout not running"

# 4  
It might be something the mailer does to really long lines. Try sending it as an attachment.
