It depends on how old the archives are. Current Mailman relies on the
email library to escape "From " lines in the body of messages written
to the .mbox file, and these should be OK. I think in the distant
past, this wasn't done, so if the .mbox file is old enough, it might
have unescaped "From " lines.
