What I did was attempt to copy a MHonArc archived messages and the db &

installed 2.3.3 then a week later 2.4.1. I'm sure I've really confused the
MHonArc message file. I did try to run mha-dbrecover but was unsuccessful
for some reason.
How did you use mha-dbrecover? Get any errors? Note, there was
a bug in v2.4.1 mha-dbrecover, however, the bug causes mha-dbrecover
to terminate before it does anything. A patch was posted to the list.
Or you could use v2.4.0 or v2.4.2's mha-dbrecover.
Now I've deleted all of the messages I had copied over from
the other site (including the DB & threads files). Now, hopefully the next
time the scheduler program launches my batch file to convert my mail it will
create a new db and thread.html file.
Am I on the right track here?
It should create a new archive (db and thread index). If you still
have all the originals in the mailbox being processed, they should
show up in the new archive.
