    Description

      The current mbox export format uses From_ headers of the form:

      {code}
      From 42a19c9092593cebf56677bc09c9589e7dd2b655327be17a844e26ac@<dev.ponymail.apache.org>
      {code}

      This disagrees with most of the commonly used mbox formats, which expect the From_ prefix to be followed by the sender email address and the UTC date and time

      It also disagrees with https://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc4155

      Note that the original PonyMail code (<=0.90) generated a line containing just 'From '.
      This was reported in https://github.com/apache/incubator-ponymail/issues/190 and fixed to generate a From line with the expected format. This fix should form part of 0.10, but for some reason a different change was made to the lists.a.o implementation.
