Hi Earl:

Thanks for answering my question.

You're right the ">" is not actually part of the data. Attached is a zipped
mbox file with 4 messages.

I guess I misunderstood the docs when it came to adding the "--". What
should the whole command be instead?

I'm a Mac OS X Microsoft Entourage user and am trying to get MHonarc to
convert its mbox files to HTML. But I can't.

Using default settings, I'm getting this error:
Warning: Could not parse date for message

I read the FAQ and the archives about using MSGSEP so I tried this:
mhonarc -msgsep ^From\s-- /Users/roger/Desktop/kat.mbox

The "--" is part of the regex, which will not match the message

It is better to zip up your mbox sample to avoid any munging of
data over transport.  For example, in the sample you included,
there are ">From..." lines for message separators.  Is the
">" actually part of the data?
