Correct, and rfc822 is fairly strict about what it accepts. Leading
empty lines in the text will toggle it over from "reading-headers"
mode to "reading-body" mode. It's even worse if you have no headers,
but your first body line has a colon in it!
Moral: massage and normalize your text before feeding it to rfc822.
