Maybe, but that's not the best way. The tool is Mailman's bin/arch. Run
it with --help to see it's doc.

The input must be in *nix mbox format. You can convert a digest, but the
best way is if you still have access to the old list, the
archives/private/LIST.mbox/LIST.mbox file already has the messages with
all headers which a digest doesn't have.
