	Incorrect.  Pipermail handles HTML fine.  It doesn't handle MIME very well.

	You may think that MIME == HTML, but that is not a valid 
assumption.  There are lots of things you can do with MIME that are 
totally unrelated to HTML, it just happens that one of the most 
common uses of MIME is as a transmission method for HTML.

	Of course, none of this solves your problem with pipermail.  I 
just wanted to clear up a common misconception.

	I can say that, since I've joined the project less than a year 
ago, I've heard from a number of people who use mhonarc or namazu as 
alternative archivers, and so far as I've been able to determine, 
they've all been using pretty much the same set of instructions as 
you have looked at.
