As far as I can see you should provide a real mbox where eMails are
stored with full headers. If you do not have one, you can only re-post
them to the new mailman-list, but I am unsure about that.
The initial mbox-conversion to HTML can be done with (Mailman version
mailman at ds$ /usr/local/mailman/bin: ./arch --help
Rebuild a list's archive.
Use this command to rebuild the archives for a mailing list. You may
want to do this if you edit some messages in an archive, or remove some
messages from an archive.
Usage: ./arch [options] <listname> [<mbox>]
Where options are:
-h / --help
Print this help message and exit.
-q / --quiet
Make the archiver output less verbose.
First wipe out the original archive before regenerating. You
usually want to specify this argument unless you're generating the
archive in chunks.
Start indexing at article N, where article 0 is the first in the
mbox. Defaults to 0.
End indexing at article M. This script is not very efficient
with respect to memory management, and for large archives, it may not
be possible to index the mbox entirely. For that reason, you can
specify the start and end article numbers.
Where <mbox> is the path to a list's complete mbox archive. Usually
this will be some path in the archives/private directory. For example:
% bin/arch mylist archives/private/mylist.mbox/mylist.mbox
<mbox> is optional. If it is missing, it is calculated.
If this is not easy enough I cannot be of anymore help as I did my
migration with this one.
