Formal specs?  No.  But you can see the page at 
<http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mbox> for an informal discussion of the subject.

A blank line isn't going to help.  You need to replace the "???@???" crap 
with the appropriate information.  In fact, what needs to go there should be 
the contents of the "Return-Path:" header, just without the angle brackets.

No, you can't delete the "From_" line, because that is the only delimiter 
that is used to separate one message from the next.

Before you start mucking about with this, I would encourage you to read up 
on what Eudora screwed up, so that you'll have a better idea of what you 
need to fix.
