You can fix the archives automatically, but there are caveats. You fix
the archive with

  bin/arch --wipe listname

This rebuilds the HTML archive from the
archives/private/listname.mbox/listname.mbox file.

The caveats are:

1) You need to check the archive for unescaped "From " lines in message
bodies which confuse bin/arch. bin/cleanarch can help with this.

2) Rebuilding the archive may result in messages being assigned new
message numbers which will result in any existing, saved URLs of
archived messages becoming invalid or retrieving the wrong message.
