Right.  But just for the record, it looks an awful lot like another
instance of the email package not handling really fouled-up messages
gracefully.  So the fix may be a long time coming.  In the meantime,
since that message is probably spam, you can most likely just delete it
and mboxtrain will continue to work.

Actually, I guess mboxtrain could be a little more error-resistant.
I'll add that to the todo list.
