Question #255075 on mailman in Ubuntu changed:

    Status: Open => Needs information

Mark Sapiro requested more information:
What Mailman version is this? Is this an old version or perhaps an old
.txt(.gz) file in the older portion of an archive? In any recent version
of Mailman body lines beginning with "From " will be escaped somehow.

Many modern MUAs will either quoted printable encode the 'F' as '=46'
when sending such a message and many MTA/MDAs will escape the line by
prepending '>', and if all that fails and a message arrives to Mailman
with a body line beginning with "From ", Mailman will prepend the
line(s) with '>'. Mailman has been doing this for a long time.
