Ah, I never noticed this, because I convert mailing lists to newsgroups
and then use tin, and tell tin "this newsgroup is actually a mailing
list, use the following email address for replies" :)

Again, I've got archives back to November last, but they're in news
spool format (one file per message), although I could convert them to
an mbox if I were pushed. 

Angel is back, incidentally
(http://www.kryogenix.org/writings/tech/recovery for what was wrong
with it), so I shall look at setting up mysql in the next few days for
the postnuke baptism, although I'm having some thoughts about a
different way to handle that (which I shall post when I get a
chance, but it basically involves making it a collaborative weblog
rather than a story/comments CMS architecture)...
