You could try Hypermail (www.hypermail.org) but the overheads are
massive. I do believe the best solution may be a mysql database I have
heard rumours that such scripts and databases are available at freshmeat
but have not tried it myself. Do let me know if you find a solution would
be great to convert those millions of messages into a nice searchable

I did play around with Hypermail a bit but it creates zilions of files, 3
for each message to allow for indexing by thread, date and author!!!


How comes it to pass, then, that we appear such cowards in reasoning,
and are so afraid to stand the test of ridicule?
