I recently decided to move all of my email archives from my Mac to the cloud with my MobileMe account. However, a hundred or so various messages, mostly from 10 years ago or more, cannot be moved because of an "invalid header" error.
After much Googling, the only solution I found was to open the messages with TextEdit and delete all headers beginning with the ">" symbol. However, none of the offending messages have this symbol at the beginning of a line. They do have a lot of gobbledygook in the headers, but I cannot tell what needs deleting.
Here is an example of headers from one of the offending messages (some info replaced with xxx):
by front7.grolier.fr (8.9.0/8.9.2) with ESMTP id JAA11294
for <email@example.com>; Thu, 18 Feb 1999 09:53:36 +0100 (MET)
Received: from modem-43.verapamil.dialup.pol.co.uk ([126.96.36.199] helo=heronet.heronet.or.jp)

for firstname.lastname@example.org; Thu, 18 Feb 1999 08:53:34 +0000
From: "name removed" <email@example.com>

I really hope someone here can take a look at let me know what the invalid header might be!
Thanks in advance.
