This won't work. You need to edit the mbox file, which is in
~mailman/archives/private/listname.mbox - not the same as the per-month
folders. Deleting per-month folders and the monthly archives won't work.
They're re-created from the the mbox file. The mbox file is a single large
file containing all the posts to the list. It's a classic Unix format mail
file in which each message is delimited with a "From address" line where From
has no colon after it, as distinguished from the "From: address" body headers.
You will need to delete messages starting with a From line and ending with the
line just before the From line on any message not deleted. Then run arch
--wipe listname and you'll get what you expect.
