First I don't know what SME means (sorry for my ignorance).  So I hope this
applies to you. There are a few ways to do this.  I'd say 2 of the easiest
are as follows.

See the ARCHIVE_TO_MBOX section in Mailman/Defaults.py and set the setting
as you need to in mm_cfg.py.

1.  Use the existing mbox file located in

    Then you can point mhonarc to that file and update from that file.  The
rest is configuring mhonarc and its templates to suite your needs.

    With this option you would have to regenerate occasionally.  I'm sure
theres a way to have it generate on the fly, but I don't know enough about
mailman or python to do it.

2.  Subscribe an archive (ie mhonarc at list.domain) user to all your lists and
use his mbox to generate the archvies with.

    With this option you can have the archives rebuild as mail comes in with
procmail filters or whatever you use.

Not sure what you mean by 'specialized' versions.  And I hope this applies
to your 'specialized' system.

Drugs may lead to nowhere, but at least it's the scenic route.
