As we know, if there is a "|preline" string missing before "wrapper 
post" command, the archives won't work.
As described in FAQ:

I realized it 3 months too late. Now I have realy big mbox files and 
it's not wise to edit them manually to add a "from somebody" line 
at the beginning of every message. I am going to write a script for 
that, but maybe someone did it before? If so, I would be grateful if 
he or she could send it to me (priv). Thanks in advance.
