Note that it would be a piece of cake to make a little Python script to grab
the raw mbox files from the archive URL above and figure out the new
messages. All you need are the urllib, mailbox and smtplib (or whatever you
want to do with the new messages) and a few original lines to combine them
in the right way :)
