"exim -d+deliver -M 1SMFVW-0004t7-Na" may help, but I wouldn't hold out
too much hope, since the diagnostics aren't great.

In every case I know of to date, format errors in the spool file have
been caused by people using other software to manipulate the file
contents inside the spool. Are you running something which might be
doing this?

Also, which version of Exim are you running?

Was this all one long line, or is it really multiple lines? If it's
multiple, then that's the corruption.
