Ok, then I think I can state that sb_filter does work with such files.  I
took an mbox file containing a single spam message, stripped it of its From_
line and fed it to sb_filter.py on stdin.  Worked as intended:

    % sb_filter.py < spam.1.eml | egrep Spam
    X-Spambayes-Classification: spam; 0.93
    X-Spambayes-Evidence: '*H*': 0.01; '*S*': 0.88; 'response.': 0.09;

Was there more you needed it to do?
