I've never used listproc but after doing a little bit of reading
on listproc.net this might work.

I don't know how your system's setup, but if you have shell access to the
listproc server, there should be a mbox files in $LPDIR/LIST-ALIAS/  You can
d/l that file then cat it into an existing list mbox file.

# cat listproc.mbox >> mailman.mbox

After that you can regenerate the archives with bin/arch

Hope it works!
