Emacs doesn't have such a "feature".

Does this happen in "emacs -Q"?  If not, look in your ~/.emacs for
something that causes this.

If this does happen in "emacs -Q", please submit a bug report with a
minimal mbox file (that's the file that movemail fetches from
/var/spool/mail/visaris) that can be used to reproduce the problem.
