Basically the same, this treats each patch separately:

#!/usr/bin/perl

use strict;

my %people = ();
my $addr = "";
my @cur = ();

sub append_item() {
if (!$addr) { return; }
if (!$people{$addr}) { @{$people{$addr}} = (); }
push @{$people{$addr}}, [@cur];
@cur = ();
}
while (<>) {
# Match address
if (/^<(.+)>/) {
# Add old item (if any) before beginning new
append_item();
$addr = $1;
} elsif ($addr) {
# Add line to patch
push @cur, $_;
} else {
# Header information
print
}
}

sub print_items($) {
my @items = @{$people{$_[0]}};
# Vain attempt to sort patches from one address
@items = sort @items;
while ($_ = shift @items) {
# Item separator
print " --------------------------------------------------------------\n";
print @$_;
}
}
append_item();
foreach $addr (sort keys %people) {
print "<$addr>\n";
print_items($addr);
print "\n";
}

Output:
