Yes, as far as I know.

The problem is that your test mail only consists of one invalid header
line. This header line seems to be ignored by the GMX SMTP server.

A mail consists of header lines, one blank line, and the body of the
mail (which may have more or less arbitrary contents).

Try the following:

echo -e "Subject: Test Mail\n\nXXX" | sendmail malon3@...24... 

This test mail has one valid header line ("Subject: Test Mail"), one
blank line, and a mail body containing the line "XXX".
This mail should get through the SMTP server as one would expect (I just
tested it).
