My problem is that I will have to actually go through and check quite 
a bit of this no matter how I go about it. At least now I know what 
Mailman will look for in order to build the archives. So I can check 
for those things as I assemble and clean the mbox up.

My other alternative was to create a special web site and upload all 
the digests. However, it wouldn't be nearly as pretty when the dust 
settled, while being as much or possibly more work to do. 

I'm not keen on the fact that the Mailman archives don't have some 
sort of search mechanism included, but I saw the suggestion in 
another post or possibly in the FAQ about getting Google to do it. 
That just might work.

Thanks again for your help,
