Well, the standard unix mailbox format forces the mailer to quote lines that start with "From " as that is the unique new-mail-starts-here identifier, so I figure the search-for-boundary check could also just check for the start of a new mail and if it finds one, skip the badly formatted multipart/alternative mail and continue with the next mail.

Or am I wrong?
