And since I haven't seen it mentioned in this thread, MHonArc does the same
(threading and indices, though by default it does not supply an index by
author). It can also deal with MIME attachments, so attached picture files
show up as images in the archived message.

This is trivial with MHonArc, which allows complete customization of the
generated HTML code.

My main problem with LWGate is that it does all work with the archives
(index generation and single message extraction) on the fly. This is OK
for small lists, but some of my lists have over 10MB of archives. Instead
I'm hacking on a package called MailServ which just provides the list
command interface, and linking it to a MHonArc archive to which I've hacked
a Glimpse indexer.
MHonArc is at <URL:http://www.oac.uci.edu/indiv/ehood/mhonarc.html>.
MailServ is at <URL:http://iquest.com/~fitz/www/mailserv/>. My list
archive in its current state is at <URL:http://www.hpc.uh.edu/type-o/>. It
has full Glimpse indexing but no Mailserv link yet. Beware, the list
content can be offensive.
Everything except the Glimpse program itself (MHonArc, MailServ, the front
end to my list, etc.) is written in Perl5.
