Oops, sorry, I thought I had changed the To address :-(

Nope, no mbox.  Re-posting won't work since I don't have the individual 
posts.  Looks like I may end up writing something, it just surprises me 
that no one else has had this problem and posted a solution - this is 
the default Majordomo archiving mechanism.  I guess all the folks who 
really wanted web archives had already converted to a real archiver and 
worked from that.
