	That's largely going to depend on Listserv.

	I don't know how Listserv stores their archives.  Mailman uses 
7th edition "mbox" format files, which can be imported using the 
"arch" tool.  See

	I don't know that anyone has written a step-by-step guide to 
importing Listserv mailing lists.  If you find or create such a 
thing, please let us know.

	In the meanwhile, I recommend that you read the documentation at 
<http://www.list.org/docs.html> for List Managers and Site 
Administrators, check the searchable FAQ Wizard at 
<http://www.python.org/cgi-bin/faqw-mm.py>, and search the archives 
of the mailman-users mailing list as shown at
