That's exactly what it does, but the problem in this case is that the
HTML part is quoted-printable encoded and the approved: line was split
across two lines of the message HTML part. I.e. '=\n' was inserted
between Approved: and the password so the search failed.

This could be accounted for by adjusting the search pattern, but the
real fix is to 'decode' the encoded part (which could be base64
encoded) before searching. This in turn has other implications for
resetting the part after removing the Approved: line, but I'll work on
