Will (re)send in next post.

Here a patch that fix the problem, please review, I am not familiar with
all these mails headers.
Note that the second when clause is not needed when setting author
before, and don't corrupt further the "to" header when wide is not used.

Also my english is not very good, but I don't understand your comments,
please fix it (I leave long lines to see better).
