We're making progress. (I assume that the .mbx file was transmitted
correctly in ASCII mode via FTP.)

this thing is:
mhonarc -add -rcfile frames.rc -definevars "MAIN-TITLE='MSCE List'"
I don't see any problem with this.
How is this command being executed? Typing it at a shell prompt?
The results look like this:
Reading resource file: frames.rc ...
Requiring content filter libraries ...
Requiring charset filter libraries ...
Adding messages to /home/bobf/public_html/mailarc/msce_list
MHonArc says that "Reading" line after it successfully opened that file.
Earl: I can't find where MHonArc generates this next message, if it indeed
No new messages
That would be generated if MHonArc never found the beginning of a message
("From " line that I cited earlier) in the .mbx file. The fact that you
saw no dots (".") to indicate each detected message indicates that the file
MHonArc read contained no delimited messages.
- message separators ("From " lines) different from what MHonArc is trying
affected by MH_MSGSEP environment variable and possible a
(also settable via command line, but you're not using that)
- input file is empty
- (remote, maybe nonsense) input file does not have 0x0A newline
terminators; but you should get at least one message detected if the
message separator is set properly (including left at its default).
Are you by any chance setting the MH_MSGSEP environment variable, or
redefinging the message separator in a resource file?
I am a bit confused why it is trying to read .../msce-lis.mbxy. Where
does this come from?
I suspect that is not generated by Mhonarc.
