I might have misunderstood. The "From xy" line starting a message in mbox format is totally wrong when using fetchmail. Only "Date:" seems authoritative as it is set by the sender and never modified.

I still got the same error with the same two IDs. How do I best split my existing mbox to work with the existing .htm2index? Can formail be used to remove duplicates?

A this morning "cvs update"d hypermail produced:

9 May 2003 bis 14 May 2003

2 Jul 2003 bis 10 Jul 2003

"1 Jan 2004 bis 7 Jan 2004" links 0401/date.html which lists messages from Dec 14 until Jan 6
"15 Feb 2004" links 0402/date.html which lists messages from Jan 7 until Feb 14

Some entries are really missing a right border. I added the contents of "by date" for the last two months.

This is worse than before. See (made with the same files and the hypermail I originally complained about) for comparasion.
