I've come across some lists which are archived into web pages, in some
cases into threaded web pages a la bulletin board / newsgroup type setup
[nb not a newsgroup feed]. Does anyone know a good place to start looking
for scripts to do this kind of thing ?
Try MHonArc at:
or Hypermail at:
MHonArc allows almost unlimited flexibility in the formatting
of the message and index page markup as well as being able
to create multiple indexes (threaded or not).
It is also supported by a pretty helpful group of folks on
a mailing list (like this one).
MHonArc *is* a bit of a pig resource-wise. The sys-op at my
ISP asked me NOT to run it from a procmail recipe (I imagine
invocation via an alias would have the same problem) as
firing up MHonArc for each incoming list message really bogged
down his machine.
I now fire it up from a .logout file when I exit my shell session.
HyperMail on the OTH is small, fast and resource-light. It has
almost NO flexibility in html-markup (unless you hack the source).
HyperMail (written in C) must be compiled for your platform.
MHonArc is implemented almost entirely in Perl.
BTW, if you should check out the rest of the eit.com site,
there a bunch of other nice software (free for non-commercial
use) there. Try:
