Hi Brad,

Try it for yourself. Maybe your needs are different. But if I want an
archiver that will process huge mbox file from other systems - without
crapping out, will decode encoded binary attachments, have flexible,
customizable output, etc., I can't think of anything else I would rather
use. If MHonarc is so bad, why do so many people go the extra lengths
currently required in order to use it instead of pipermail?

As I say, it works for me. And very well. Maybe worth a second look? If you
try it again let me know what you find.

- Kevin
