Dude, just use your favorite text editor and copy/paste the email into
that file.  Be sure to squeeze it in between two emails (and not in the
middle of one).

You'll probably have to munge things a bit then, but if you just look at
the other emails around this one in the mbox file, you should be able to
figure it out in a snap.

Good Luck - Jon Carnes
