... Procmail still has bugs dating into the previous century and no realis
tic hope that they will ever be fixed. (The mysterious > From bug is part
icularly annoying to me).
What is that 'mysterious' bug? If you're referring to procmail inserting
a '>' at the beginning of a line starting with 'From ', it is not a bug.
Quite the contrary, it is a _documented_ feature. 'Classical' mailreaders
took a line starting with 'From ' as the _start_ of a message. Therefore,
procmail intentionally 'quotes' such a line in a message body, so that
mail clients will not be mislead into thinking this is the start of a new
*IF* that is your 'mysterious' bug, then, at approximately line 58 in source
file 'mailfold.c', there is a line;
ffrom=fifrom(fromw,restbody,endp); /* scan body block */
replace it with:
And such lines in a message body will not be quoted.
