Thanks for the quick and helpful reply, Richard! I remember the htdig
patch and will probably use that.

Mhonarc/wilma/glimpse was nice, but having to set it up per-list was a
real pain, and I found that it was very picky about file permissions and
just sneezing as the wrong user would screw things up. I'm hoping with
htdig to have an automatic solution.

You can use $prefix/bin/arch to add the contents of .mbox files to the

You could consider using the following patch to Mailman for integrating
htdig for archive search:


and the following patch which integrates MHonArc for HTML archive page
generation, which is compatible with the htdig integration:


These patches are also available via sourceforge.

Hi --

I just moved a small, but very long lived, mailing list system from
Majordomo to Mailman. The basic conversion went just fine, thanks.

I have archives of the old lists going back almost ten years, and I'd
like to import those into the Mailman archiver. They're stored in
what I think is standard mbox format (each message begins with a "From
" line) with each month's messages stored in a single file named
something like "list.0303" for the March, 2003 archives.

Is there a way to bring these into the Mailman archive system?



PS -- previously, these archives were processed by
wilma/mhonarc/glimpse to make a set of full-text searchable web
archives, but for the new system I'm thinking of just adding htdig or
similar to the existing Mailman archives rather than trying to
maintain a separate system.
