Hi Ken:

I agree it may not be a bug; it may be something in my nmh (or other?) config 
I'm running fedora 27, with sendmail/procmail/rcvstore.

I asked the sender of one of the emails if they
put an empty line in between paragraphs, and they claim they always do so.

The other sender has been sending me email for a long time, and I
do not recall having this issue prior to the 1.7.1 upgrade. When
replying, I do not remember having to infer where one paragraph (in
the "> " quoted text) ends and another starts. "\n\n" to end a paragraph
visually clear, vs just a single "\n".
