Try replacing the CRLF's in the archive file to CR's. There really ought 
to be an "Export to Windows or Unix/Linux file?" option in the 
exp-arc.pl script, where the script would generate CRLF's only if you 
choose Windows. Another thing about threading:   Lyris does not maintain 
In-Reply-To: and References: headers properly. You can't establish 
anything more than a two-level thread (original message and replies to 
that message). At least not in Lyris ListManager 5.0 or earlier. This 
has been my one major stink with Lyris.
