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.
