Indeed, you must certainly NOT use "\r\n" in filters.

For example without ORS = "\r\n" the following script will cause smtpd to 
basically just hang.
There is no errors reported, but when I attempt to telnet localhost 25 the 
daemon doesn't greet me.
After adding ORS = "\r\n" everything works as expected.

I'm not familiar with awk beyond very basic uses, could this be due to some
flushing not happening by default and which gets triggere with "\r\n" ?

This is another awk filter which doesn't use ORS:


so I'm not sure why yours block but the solution is not with "\r\n" for sure
I get the same with filter-rewrite-from.
