      Description

      The version of the code on lists.a.o does not handle quotiing of From_ lines correctly. It strips the previous blank line.

      For example the following message [1] has the text:

      -- cut here --
      Random text

      From Here to Eternity
      -- cut here --

      The same is true of the source [2]

      However in the exported mbox file [3] (which is derived from [2]) the text is:

      -- cut here --
      Random text
      >From Here to Eternity
      -- cut here --

      The blank line after 'Random text' has been dropped.

      This does not appear to happen with the current PonyMail code; it looks like a local issue with the lists.a.o installation.
