This is actually a strange behaviour of some mail servers. That
line is part of the file format of the unix mail spool file, and
should not reported to you by the mail server. However, they seem
to report it sometimes... The patch is easy, anyway.

I have this working with a non-recursive PARSE rule.

They should not be splitted up by an = sign!! The header cannot be
encoded with quoted-printable... The conformant way of splitting a
line is simply putting a space or a tabe at the start of the
second (and subsequent) lines. My version of import-email handles
this (as well as repeated headers, such as Received:).

I think that I sent my version to you? If not, let me know and
I'll send it to you. (It's not perfect nor finished, but well...).
