I've done something similar in the past and there is no special header
(that I know of).  

In my case, I created the list in Mailman, deleted the existing archive
files (which where simply test messages).  Copied the old lists mbox
file over the Mailman one, then ran the Mailman arch command, and told
it to re-create the archives.  Worked a charm!
