I keep losing emails from this person... which, since they're not
addressed to me or my father, is rather embarrassing!

The rule which ought to kick in and automatically accept them is not
triggering, probably for the same reason that they are subsequently
being deleted on the 'missing Message-id' rule:   examination of the
debugging dump gives the header as follows.   (Original file was in CRLF
format with assorted extra [0a] and [0d] characters, which I've
represented manually to avoid e-mail programs' being too clever with

This is a multi-part message in MIME format.


Clearly AntiSpam is downloading the entire message header, but ending
processing when it encounters the LFLF code, before either the X-RCPT or
Message-Id header fields can be read:   as a result, the e-mails are
being wrongly deleted.   Is this the result of a malformed e-mail
program at the far end, or is it a bug in AntiSpam?
