	You appear to have an MTA that is not performing 7th edition 
mbox-format "^From" escaping.  I wouldn't have expected that this 
would cause a problem, because arch should be taking each message as 
it comes in and processing it as a single unit, regardless of whether 
or not this was done.  Of course, this would be an issue when you're 
importing large numbers of messages into the archive, as I believe 
that the tools probably do assume 7th edition mbox-format mailboxes.

	If you can configure your MTA to perform this function, that 
should resolve the problem.
