Does anyone here have a tool which will (attempt to) generate original

Not that I know of. It is possible, but it can be complicated if
you try to deal with MIME decoded messages.
I am looking to take over archiving of a mailing list from a previous

You can still take the existing archives and create your look-and-feel
by applying your resources via the -editidx option.
Additionally I've been asked to attempt to generate an mbox version of
the contents of a MHonArc archive to send to the FindMail guys to
extend their archive of a mailing list further back.
Why? Why provide work for them to where they can profit from it?
Aren't they a commercial group that makes money by advertising?
