Just to make things even more confuse, SIMS 1.8b8 has some smart changes on
the file format:
- First line of the mail file added a CR
- "From " no long been escaped as ">From " if it is not a full email border
(eg: From Sat Jun 24 17:26:24 2000; 000000022159).

So looking up for "From" at beginning of a line as the starting point of an
email is no longer reliable on b8.

Never has been.  the From: header, for example.

You need to look for "\rFrom "  (note the space)

In SIMS 1.7 is there "From " on the first mail and "\rFrom " on the rest... !

In SIMS 1.8b8 is there "\rFrom " on all messages. ?!

Was there someone who has the complete Regex for SIMS Mailfiles?
