Thank you Mark,

What is houdl do with the archives? i mean there are list_name.mbox and the 
list_name directory, the list_name directory have the previous months info, 
i must copy all this directories before merge the mbox file?

It have the databases and attachements directories also, i must overwrite 
them withe backed up files? and the index.html and pipermail.pck files?

Thank you!
