only problem with this procedure is this step:

Majordomo doesn't (by default anyway) store its sent messages in an 
mbox.  My archives are essentially a directory with all the digests.  
You can see one of the digests here:


I've taken a look at the old digest_arch script, but I don't know 
python at all to figure out how to make it work (I tried a pass on some 
test files, but didn't end up with a useful mbox).  I've also dug 
through the FAQ and the Mailman Users list archive, but I haven't found 
a posted solution.  If someone has made this work and can pass a 
solution or clue, I'd be grateful.  I do know perl and shell scripting 
well enough to adapt someone else's solution, if something like that 
exists.  Thanks for any insight.
