Hm, interesting!

Difference in versions? In storage type?

(GNU Emacs 27.0.50 built from a7b7b85567f766ff510a5eaaaf32dbbbec15efd0,

I would guess that storage formats that have more than one email per
file need to "escape" lines starting with "From " (as that is the
separator), and maybe something then happens to lines starting with
"from " as well?

If you view the raw article, what does the line look like then?

Interestingly my attachment here was unmangled! What happens if you do a
similar attachment to your next follow-up here?
