Yes I tried this but it failed to work - however it is no fault of
python.  mutt appears to place 'From ' lines at the beginning of 
each entry in an mbox file.  When it didnt' find these it complained of
an invalid file.

I added some code to duplicate the line as mutt expects to see it (which
it turns out is very specific) and all is good now.

Thanks for all who replied.
