I just tried to remove two messages from a mhonarc archive, using the -rmm

As a result, the whole archive is fouled up and I can't sent new messages
to it, and I can't clean it up. Is there some command that will look at
what's there and rewrite the database? Any idea why this happened?
I was logged in as a regular user, but I see that the database and the
message .html files are all owned by daemon.
That was the problem most likely: lack of proper permissions to modify
If you have the original messages, you can recreate the archive fomr
those. If not, you will have to wait until v2.3 to have a utility
to recreate the db from mhonarc message files (unless you know Perl
and write your own).
I'll try this weekend to see if I can package up an alpha version
of v2.3 for those who need/want to try out the newer stuff. The
new docs are still some time away.
