Bingo.  That's fixed it.  I am extremely happy.

OK, let me know how else to help.

Yes, I've tried this.. nothing.  :/

..Ben uses lots of grep variations..

Ah ha!  Deleting this mailbox makes the "Warning: Unknown field parser 
'list-id.body'" message go away:

{   mailboxes = (
         {   filter = "list-id.identifier exists";
             name = "Mail Lists";
             parentUUID = "MAILBOXES";
             set = "ALL_MESSAGES";
             uuid = "ED25D917-27D5-4204-8E91-8243AF6DF446";

Thanks very much for your help!  You've made a great mailer.
