Just a guess: could it be that you have doublicate messages in the archive?
Is what's the difference between:
grep -i '^message-id:' my.mbox | sort | uniq | wc -l
grep -i '^message-id:' my.mbox | sort | wc -l
Is it in the order of 200? If it's the case mhonarc simply does not
count doublicate messages.
[anthonyw mail/]% grep -i '^message-id:' archive | sort | uniq | wc -l
[anthonyw mail/]% grep -i '^message-id:' archive | sort | wc -l
Thanks for this insight. It is indeed a case of duplicate messages. I have
two accounts that redirect list traffic to the same subaddress which
procmail then files in my archive folder.
This has been really helpful. Thanks again.
