I will have to look carefully at that mbox format. There
are definately messages in it. Thunderbird reads it OK,
but maybe Thunderbird is more forgiving of mbox
formatting. The messages orginated in Lyris ListManger.
They have a script to export to mbox format.
New messages sent to the list get appended to the end of
the mbox file OK and do display in the archive.
