I actually should have taken some more time reading the MHonarc help files.
you can use the list.mbox and it works fine. ( i didn't have to seperate them)
Another helpful hint that I just figured out is that for mailers that remove the
top FROM: from a message
you can use the command formail -ds < list.mbox >> new_list
then run Mhonarc with that. works like a charm
