Okay, perhaps I'm being dense here.  Are you saying that MHonArc
will read the contents of previously generated mail*html files for
MSG ID strings to do reference threading?

Sort of, but not the way you think.

Surely MHonArc checks the MSG ID strings found in incoming message
bodies against its DB of MSG ID's, and since both are unmunged (the
original message source and the DB) such reference threading works
correctly.  The munging then affects only the post-MHonArc
generated HTML files -- something that MHonArc pays no attention to
from there on out in its operations.

Yes on first sentence.  No on second.  If MHonArc tags a message for
updating (ie. an existing message page must be updated due to an
add), it will scan for message-ids in the page and check them
against the new message-ids that came in.  If there is a match,
MHonArc makes the message-id a link.

Oh, I see, sorta.  Thanks.  

Under what exact circumstances will MHonArc attempt to update an
existant message page?  Surely for an -add where the MSG ID is a dupe,
MHonArc ignores the "new" message?
