[Bug 1228874] Re: Message body got mangled

Lines which begin with "From " (i.e. the word From, capitalized and
followed by a space) are message separators in various mailbox file
formats. Thus, various mail programs will escape such lines in message
bodies so they aren't mistaken as message separators. The most common
method of escaping is preceding the line with '>' which is what was done

This is intentional by design and is not a bug.
