# Not sure what's going on here, although I never piped anything through
# hypermail like this.

Try this:

cd tests
for i in mboxes/t[0-9]*
        cat $i | ../src/hypermail -p -i -u -c "test.rc" 
        sleep 1


If you are piping something into hypermail then you need to tell it that.

     -i Reads in articles from standard input.

     -u    This updates archives by one message only.  With  this
          option,  only  one email message will be read in from a
          file or standard input. This message will be  added  to
          the  end  of the existing HTML file archive and will be
          integrated into it by links and  cross-references.  All
          archive  index files will be regenerated to include the
          new message.

Or if you use the config file only:

increment = 1

          Set this to 1 to read one article only and append it to
          existing archives.

mbox = NONE
          This is the mailbox to read messages in from. Set  this
          with a value of NONE to read from standard input.
