The command unrmail gives the current date to all the messages

You are looking at the "From " message separator, which is not a
header and thus not part of the message itself; it is actually part
of the Unix mailbox file format.  IMHO, unrmail is doing the right
thing by separating each message with the current timestamp.

It is also incredibly slow.

It certainly is, but I haven't had any luck yet profiling it

to find out where it's spending all that time.  It also prompts
me frequently for a safe coding system when it decides that iso-8859-1
is unsafe.
