No. I just tried it. If you're using a patches 1.02 you'll have to take care of your configuration. Hypermail is able to simply add the new files to the archive.

Huh? Where's the problem? Just rtfm.

Use "-c config-file" on the command line and put something like the following in that very file:

  set hm_ihtml_headerfile = /var/lib/webspace/etc/linuxger.head
  set hm_mhtml_headerfile = /var/lib/webspace/etc/linuxger.head
  set hm_dir = /var/lib/webspace/infodrom/Linux/LinuxGER/list/%y
  set hm_label = "#LinuxGER"

These headerfiles look like:

  <body bgcolor="#8fdfff">
  <img src="../../c4-l6.gif" width=320 height=100 alt="#LinuxGER"> <br>

  <img align=center src="/gifs/elements/colorbar.gif"> <br>



Beware of bugs in the above code; I have only proved it correct,
not tried it.  -- Donald E. Knuth
