Unfortunately, this probably won't work. The listname.mbox/listname.mbox
path is special to Private.py. It doesn't allow access to arbitrary
files in the listname.mbox directory.
As Brad suggests, you can reconstruct an overall .mbox file from the
monthly .txt or .txt.gz files. You can pretty much just concatenate
them, but you may need to edit From: headers and From_ separators to
change ' at ' back to '@' in addresses. Also see
for some other potential issues with the .txt files.
