No. It'll bloat to death. Hypermail keeps the mailbox in memory.

I agree with Tom here. Even *if* hypermail would grok this, would anyone really like an index page with 129,000 mail links? Hey, I use to think an index page with 1,000 entries is annoying...

I would make a script that would split the whole set in at least 500 parts. Possibly somehow using the dates in the individual mails. Then I would run hypermail on every one of those 500 parts.

I would avoid making a script that adds single mails to hypermail, as that would make the total operation even slower.

Just my ideas, ignore them at will.
