The "X-From-Line" is throwing off the MIME sniffer.  Most sniffers
(including gnome-vfs and Apache) expect one of "From", "Received",
"Relay-Version", or "Return-Path".  They're not technically required to
start the file, but it's generally a good, easy to detect convention.
Some KMail users are seeing something similar.

You could argue that the bug is in's mime magic
database, but realistically it's impossible to detect every possible
first line that would be a compliant message.  It's generally good
behavior for mailers to append their headers rather than prepend them.
For this reason you may want to file an interoperability bug against
