Modfying MM archives doesn't work like that. Simply putting some extra 
HTML files in a directory will not work.

You will have to modify the list's .mbox archive (in file 
$prefix/archives/private/<listname>.mbox/<listname>.mbox) and run 
$prefix/bin/arch to rebuild the archives from the .mbox content. This 
will regenerate the HTML version of the list archives in a coherent 
way. Make sure you look at the usage of bin/arch and use the options 
you need.
