I don't pretend to have any expertise here, but I think that option
sounds like a good idea.  Go ahead and add it to the discussion :)
(Nice timing for our problem to come up while you're discussing it...)

Fair enough :)

Some imap servers seem to as well...but one was strict enough to
consider messages with only \n as having no headers and only a
body...(apologies if I offend anyone here, but the more I use it, the
more I dislike imap...)

I've submitted a bug, so hopefully this'll get done sooner or later (it
should be easy enough to do).  For our (spambayes) purposes we'll just
do it ourselves since we have to be compatible with Python 2.2.
