Actually, I'd imagine that one of the MTAs between him and the list put
that in. So it probably was a message header.
Watch; I'll put 'From '... at the beginning of the following line, and it'll
come out as '>From '...
Sorry, you're both incorrect. It was NOT a header. I just used the
word "header" in quotes because the buggy mail tool treated it as a
header. And the '>' was there because _I_ was quoting the received
data. I have found out since posting the query that it is a bug in
Sun's mailtool, to treat every "From" in column one as the start of a
new message. No human could look twice at "From appearances, they" and
think it is the start of a message header!
