Hi all, When someone wants to import a bunch of messages into an archive, the provide an mbox file. The mbox file format is simple, but has at least one gotcha.
In order to avoid misinterpretation of lines in message bodies which begin with the four characters "From", followed by a space character, the mail delivery agent must quote any occurrence of "From " at the start of a body line. The majority of mbox files I've been handed do not escape "From" like they should, and this causes problems on M-A's end; inc from the nmh suite gets unhappy and starts trashing messages. Are there any recommendations for an mbox2mbox converter that will clean up these wayward almost-but-not-quite-mbox files?
