"Sometimes"? Not always?

This is due to the fact that the main "Content-Type: multipart/mixed"
header is missing along with the From:, etc.

Does this happen only with a certain poster or posters, at random or
always? I don't know how it could be Mailman. I suspect some issue
with the incoming message.
