:Note, I am confused anout some of what you said. How would message

:recreate the archive from scratch. And if this is what is done,
:there should be no problems? Can you elaborate?
Perhaps something along these lines is meant:
Have messages 00001-01000. Someone refers to message 00900 somewhere.
Lots of people get it. Find out message 00500 was spam. So delete it, eg.
% mhonarc -rmm 00500
message 00900 is now different. Lots more people complain to you that the
wrong message is being referenced.
I suppose what's desired is a message name that's static for that message.
Whether this is a simple task to implement, well.... you know the code
better than us.
