The .txt files are the text version of the "cooked" archives.  They 
are not in "raw" mbox format.  The format is close to that of a "raw" 
mbox, and it wouldn't take too much work to turn them back into a 
"raw" mbox format file.  However, a lot of headers and other 
information will have been thrown away.

If at all possible, when you're working with archives and you want to 
import or regenerate them, you always want to work from the original 
"raw" mbox format files.  That way you minimize the amount of 
information that might accidentally be lost.
