I run a low volume mailing list which has previously been run by
Majordomo list software, but was transferred flawlessly by my tech-guy
to the Mailman platform.
I have a couple of questions related to the mail archives and searching

server, but with limited time I'm doing the research first, so I have a
1) I now have two separate list archives: the old Majordomo (monthly)
archive and the new Mailman archive (not sure yet how it's
organized/located but assume it's going by the default settings.
How do I merge the Majordomo archives with Mailman's current archives?
2) I also have a website associated with the mailing list which has a
simple search function for the old Majordomo archives. It also has a
basic filter for munging email addresses.
As I'm rebuilding the website I want a more efficient and up-to-date
search function which searches simultaneously through the website and
mailing list archive. I've been told that one which uses a database
(PostgreSQL, SQLite etc.) is benefitial. Also, the archive-filter should
be more advanced (I don't need the email headers/footers to show up in
the search results), and finally it would be nice to have the relevant
results show a whole list-thread on the searched subject to show up as
opposed to just separate messages/and the website results, so people can
follow a relevant discussion on whatever they've searched.
Can someone suggest a search script which will allow me to do this? It
seems to be a real challenge to find something which is up-to-date,
still supported and working well if you don't want to use Google's local
