"Found this article : ""Fix invalid mail headers when moving from Thunderbird to IMAP"", where a Python script is proposed that fixes all mailbox files in a given directory.

Even if you don't use Python, it should be quite easy to do the same in another language or a text-editor or sed. Apparently, this fixed the problem for the author of the article."
