Glad to hear you got it working, John, but unless every single blah.* archive changes on a daily basis, there's no need to run that every night.

(i'm assuming that blah.200105 would not change after May of 2001.)

You'll need to use the glob (*) for the initial conversion, but for a daily conversion, you probably should specify just the one mailbox.

Or, to make it even easier on your system, you might consider using hypermail to process each message as it comes in, editing your .forward (or equivalent file) to include a line like:

| hypermail -i -u -c blahconf.rc

(The -i means read messages from standard input, and -u means update archive by one article.)

This will be faster than havin to recreate the archive from scratch every night.
