I think this has been reported on the bug tracking system before.

What I want to know is why you have files in your ~/Mail/whatever/
with envelope 'From ' lines in the first place. The usual path
via inc doesn't have them (I think because they are the delimiters
in a mail spool file and so get stripped out as the messages are
split). So perhaps this bug should be fixed by making whatever
path you're using to put messages in the folder strip out the
envelope From as inc does.
