Improved documentation. Removed stdin pipe detection hack. Many
small date parsing errors found and fixed after running the
program over 500 MB of mailing list archives.
You are a mailing list administrator, or you are somebody who
keeps mailing list archives for a user group, or you just have
a fetish for email archives. Now, don't you always wonder why
after running Hypermail or MHonArc on your archives you always
have some emails which date back to 1980 or far away in the
future like 2011, even though you started collecting emails in
the year 2000 and it's still this very same year? While there
are many answers to this question, there is a very easy way to
fix many, if not all, of these messages, which results in a much
more consistent email archive without broken discussion threads.
This software requires Python (http://www.python.org). It is
known to work with versions 1.5.2 or 2.2.3. You also need my
mailbox_reader module, which you should be able to get from:
Please don't send me private copies of your public answers. Thanks.
