[Mailman-Users] working on an insanely huge moderation request list

I recently took the administration of an mailinglist over.
It was quite a shock to find out that it had over 8000(!)
mails waiting in its moderation queue. The problem with this
is of course that the webinterface times out before giving
anything back and returns a 500 server internal error from
the webserver.

I've read about discard and that i can just delete everything
in the queue. But i'd rather like to go trough the list
and be able to aprove some of the held mails. Is there any
way i can work on the queue? Another possibility would be
if i could extract the mails into an mbox/maildir and
handle them in a mail client.

The mailman version in question is 2.1.5

Thanks in advance
