When the above mail arrives my mailbox, the "From " becomes ">From ". This
is de-facto standard (for V7 Mailboxes), I know, and is added by procmail.
Unluckily, this happens to MIME contents as well as normal mail contents.
Of course, that won't appear in base64 contents, but quoted-printable has
I know that procmail will avoid escaping "From " with ">" if a
"Content-Length" header appears in the mail. Unluckily, the mail server
feeding me mails eat all "Content-Length" header. Anyone know whether there
is a convenient "filter" that can be put in procmail to add a correct
Content-Length header into the mail even if that has not been there before?
("filter" put in quote because I know they can't be "real" filter, but must
instead store the whole message somewhere in order to count the number of
bytes there before going back and rewrite the Content-Length header.)
