That's an artifact of the mail system in use.  In the very old days
that was used to avoid mail systems thinking it was another From:
header.  Some unix mail systems still escape it this way, I'm guessing
yours is one.  I'm sure you'll find it documented in one of the many
RFCs, somewhere.

As for wrapping, as you copy-and-pasted it there's no way for anybody
to say anything meaningful ;)  If you were to attach a sent message
then people may be able to say more.

                 Please keep list traffic on the list.
