Well...its the header of the mbox exported from Lyris.

The Lyris export creates this:

 From user at example.com Thu, 01 Dec 2005 10:02:08 -0500

New messages sent via Mailman and  appended to the mbox 
show up in the Archive with this header

 From nobody Fri Mar  3 17:39:04 2006

Its the date/time format that is the problem.  I did a 
manaul edit on the Lyris export date format so it matched 
the second Mailman format and the message showed up in the 
Archives after running arch.

So I have to figure out how to change those date formats. 
 Anyone know of scripts/tools to manipulate these date
