    Yes yes! Do a google for Yahoo2mbox.pl! :)

    I converted a highly active list (about 200 subscribers, over a period of
    6 years) to mbox format just peachy :) It does, however, consume time, and
    depending on the size of the list, may take a few days.

    Many thanks to everyone who responded. I am running the Perl script now,
    and it seems to be chugging along. It now occurs to me I don't know how to
    import the archive into my mailman list. I checked the Admin pages and saw
    nothing. Any hints? My guess is the answer may depend on my ISP.

    Again, many thanks.

    Assuming you are using MM's builtin pipermail archiver normal practice
    would be to prepend the content of mbox file containing the old material to
    the mbox archive of the MM list (usually
    $prefix/archive/private/<listname>.mbox/<listname>.mbox) and then run the
    MM script $prefix/bin/arch. This will build HTML archives for the list
    including the old material.
    Again, many thanks.

    I wish I could share your enthusiasm :-), but haven't had much success
    with Yahoo2mbox.

    I let it run for 15 minutes to retrieve just the one message and the
    debug output shows it just looping around going nowhere.

    Is there some trick that I am missing ?


    Thanks
