Bug Description

If a message in an mbox contains a line which begins with 'From', the parse apparently sees this as a separate new (unread) message.

version 5.4 on Ubuntu Jaunty and Karmic.

Do these messages have a Content-Length header? If not, there's no fix for this :-(

If they do have a Content-Length header, then mail-notification/src/mn-base-mbox-mailbox-backend.gob could be patched to call g_mime_parser_set_respect_content_length (parser, TRUE); which will fix the problem.

I have also that same problem in Ubuntu 10.04. It's pretty annoying.
