Brilliant, that's what I was looking for. Thanks everybody!

I was confused by this as well; the problem may be that our mailer config
has changed in the meantime, now adding '> ' to any body lines beginning with
From. A few old archives that I had processed by MHonArc still had bare
"^From"s in their body, so MSGSEP is what I'll use. Many thanks,
