The above helped me spot a problem although it does not quite explain 
what you see. Currently, an address-only (no name) message is skipped if 
MailMate has already seen a message with both name and address. 
Unfortunately, this also means that the date of the address-only message 
is forgotten. I'll fix this and I'll notify you when there is a test 
build with this change, so you can see how it affects what you see.
