Yup, this is similar to what I did.  I recommend running cleanarch on that mbox before importing it, to ensure that it is ok.  I took the second option in that FAQ, as it was a new list.  Copy the Mbox file into the private directory after running it through cleanarch, then run the arch command to generate the HTML archives for the web interface.
