You can use $prefix/bin/arch to add the contents of .mbox files to the
HTML archives of a Mailman mailing list. RUn it with the -h option for
more information.

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.
