Does anyone have any ideas?

mhonarc -umask 022

Also, does anyone have any ideas as to how I can set this up
to automatically create my "YYYY-MM" directories when the first
message for the month gets posted to the list so I don't have to
go in and create all of them by hand?

Here's the script I use in my .qmail file, it relies on procmail though to
do some logging and X-No-Archive honoring.  Its called "addtoindex" and
was originally written by a friend of mine, I just ported it to solaris
(where mktemp(1) doesn't natively exist and you can't trap sig 11) and
tweaked it slightly.  It creates YYYYMM directories but I'm sure you can
modify it to your needs.  I'd welcome any comments if somebody sees a
glaring error here.
