bin/arch --wipe LISTNAME

However, it is a good idea to first run

bin/cleanarch --dry-run < archives/private/LISTNAME.mbox/LISTNAME.mbox

to check for unescaped "From " lines in message bodies.


bin/arch --help


bin/cleanarch --help

Assuming the the list's scrub_nondigest setting is No, so that this
html part was scrubbed for the archive and not scrubbed from the
original message, then these links will be fixed as will the "more
information about this list" links.
