Truncates in what way? When I tried this, it seemed to work fine.
Note, however, that it is somewhat dangerous to modify an iterator while
you are using it. (That is, you are setting mbox[key] while doing
mbox.iteritems.) I might suggest you grab the keys as a list and iterate
for key in mbox.keys():
msg = mbox[key]
