I have a mailing list which automatically puts the name of the list at the

I don't think MHonArc can do that.


You will have to create a filter
program (with sed or perl) that do this stripping on the message before
the message get into mhonarc. 

Or, if you know a little Perl, you can modify the code to do
what you want.  The place to do it is in and in the
routine read_mail_header().  Just add your code after the part
where the subject is extracted; there are comments in the routine,
so it should be easy to spot.

Note, having the ability to massage subjects is a useful function.
I hope to add it for the next release.  One will have to know
a little about Perl regexes inorder to use it.
