I think sites that provide access to the original raw data use the
message-id as a handle for getting to it since MHonArc gives you
access to the message-id. Therefore, whatever storage system you
use for the raw data, you will need to be able to find messages by
<nod> That's workable.
Since you mentioned that you have a MH-style mailstore, how
difficult would it be to have the filename of each message be the
actual message-id? Therefore, you can access the original mail
message just by a simple file open operation using the message-id
as the filename (with whatever pathname prefix).
Hurm. Yeah, It would be trivial to write a little tool to just
symlink each message against its MessageID. (I can't do renames s
the mailstore is regularly processed by real MH tools) <testing>
Yup, that'll work. Thanks.
