I agree... but let me add a few notes: 1) Most programs I know of (at least Evolution, haven't checked mutt yet) that do this =46rom encoding do it completely wrong... why? Just quoting (regexp) "^From (.*)$" lines to "=46rom \1" is obviously not enough. One also needs to quote "^>(>*)From (.*)$" lines to "=3E\1From \2"... otherwise clients could again wrongfully unquote such lines... For Evolution I've already opened an upstream bug about this (but of course they ignore it like the corruption itself). 2) Be liberal in what you accept and conservative in what you send. I think it's a good idea if we enable this quoting as a safe-guard in all places where we can... but this cannot mean that we can rely on other using it, too. The mail standards never demand it, so we must handle the From_ line corruption by going away from mboxo. Cheers, Chris.
