Do you have a valid .mbox file in the archive directory? (That
directory will be something like
/usr/local/mailman/archives/private/listname.mbox and the file in
there will be called listname.mbox)
If not, arch has nothing to work with as that is the file that the
arch script uses to build the archive message files and index.
If you want to build a single contiguous archive for both the
previous list and the current one, you can concatenate the two .mbox
files into a single file named with your list name and an .mbox
extension. Once that is done, you can rebuild the archive using the
Venimus, Saltavimus, Bibimus (et naribus canium capti sumus)
