Actually I didn't even put a ">" (for instance, it doesn't appear
in the mail copy I received in Bcc). That's Debian's mailing-list
software that did.
In the Bcc copy:
| From the terminal point of view, the shell is just like another
In the copy from debian-user:
| >From the terminal point of view, the shell is just like another
That's rather stupid because until the mail is stored in a mbox
mailbox (for users who use this), the ">" is not useful at all.
Note also that this "From" escaping differs from the using quoting,
which has a space after ">".
