	Are you talking about trying to take the archive of the list on 
one server and import that into another server?

	If you're not a priviledged site admin with root access, then you 
won't be able to import the archives.  Period.  That's just the way 
Mailman works.

	If you can't get root access, then you need to ask whomever is 
providing you hosting services to do this for you.  If they won't, 
then you need to find hosting services somewhere else.
