Hi Peter.

I wouldn't offer myself as an expert on these matters, but isn't From <space> valid as a first line? Or only as a sperator in mbox-style files. In any case, here's an example. It works fine with 2.0.16

I'm not sure there is a definitive statement of what's valid in MH and Maildir message files, but Balsa tries to interoperate with other MUAs as far as possible. Balsa 2.1 wouldn't put a line like that in such a file.

Re Maildir, states:

The message is delivered without an extra UUCP-style From_ line, without any >From quoting, and without an extra blank line at the end.

I can't find any corresponding statement about MH.

We'll look into a patch.
