There are a number of ways of using MHonArc to generate HTML archives 
for Mailman lists, including the Mailman/pipermail/MHonarc integration 
patch I publish which is available through here:


MHonArc seems to be better at handling HTML mail and attachments than 
MM's integrated pipermail archive but pipermail does do some aspects of 
archive organisation quite well IMHO

Referring to your earlier post to the list, subject "searchable 
archives", there is also an Mailman/HTdig integration patch available 
via the URL cited above; nut this is not the only way to add search to 
MM archives, see also:
