I have about 50,000 messages in a maildir.   I am trying to import them
into my Cyrus mailbox, and I have gotten one to import successfully.  I
continually get a message 'invalid headers'.  Mozilla [1.2.1] says:

The current command did not succeed the mail server responded: Message
contains invalid headers

I have tried a variety of messages here are some sample headers:

Anyway, I don't see any error messages in my logs, but this is kind of
distressing.  I have seen some historical messages on the list, but
nothing very detailed.  I need to migrate about 30 - 40 users, but I am
not certain how.


VB programmers ask why no one takes them seriously, 
it's somewhat akin to a McDonalds manager asking employees 
why they don't take their 'career' seriously.
