Yes sure, I will remember to do that in the future.

For now, I am thinking to fix the split FROM header issue. What I have thought
of is to keep a variable keeping the part data and if the author cannot be
resolved at the present line, then at the next line join the data and parse
the email.
I think the implementation to this will be fairly easy, with one
flag variable to indicate whether the from header has been parsed in the
previous line.

Should i proceed with this?

Thanks,
Dwaipayan.
