Hi,
 
So there is an MBOX import in 907 but it needs special handling.

It takes the X-Apparently-To:  field as the group name.

E.g.

X-Apparently-To: cetarch@yahoogroups.com


so the bit between X-Apparently-To: & "@"   is the groupname.

which is all fine and well until its X-Apparently-To: bob@gmail.com

which we didn't expect.

So you need to clean your MBOX file before import to insure all occurrences are in this form

X-Apparently-To: <groupname>@yahoogroups.com


There are no plans for MBOX export.

Although I think I did write a PG4 to MBOX python program.

So if you send me your PG4 file I can convert it for you.

Or I can send you the Python code.

Here it is (attached).

I can't remember how far I got with it.

I think it works...
