  The "From-Space" ("From ") is classical UNIX MAILBOX message separator

  If your email folders are not UNIX MAILBOX files, but something else,
  I can't much help there.   For UNIX MAILBOX files the 'mailbox' local
  delivery will create correct separator lines, that much is certain.

  How is your user downloading the email ?  Via POP/IMAP ?
  Which server software you have ?  (ZMailer in itself does not come
  with any POP/IMAP servers.)
