I don't know! file (the shell tool) says

RMAIL: HTML document, ASCII text, with very long lines

In this thread, it has been mentioned that since I use
Emacs

GNU Emacs 23.4.1

it should be mbox. The tool b2m says

b2m: standard input is not a Babyl mailfile.

Also, when I use C-u G f with "guess", the guess is
mbox.

mbox gets the best result, and it makes sense (no
threading the same mail etc.), *but* it goes on only for
30 messages (that are all very recent). Perhaps some
message isn't sound, and it works from the present, and
back, and it gets stuck on that?
