[nice info snipped]

Thanks for the kind words....  

All the info is in the docs, but it's sometimes hard to ferret it out and 
integrate the bits from various places. 

MHonArc is a supremely flexible product, but the learning curve is fairly 
steep for non-programmer types and there are some tricks that aren't in 
the docs at all.

I agree. The syntax of the resource files seemed to be so complicated 
for me that I took almost a year to start diging through the 
documentation and examples until I found out that it is relatively 
easy to configure MHonArc.

A good example of this "hidden" power is the undocumented (in any place I 
could find) ability to refer to resources created with <DEFINEVARS> on the 
command-line.  Earl clued me into that ability in response to my question 
about getting command-line parms to apply to an <OTHERINDEXES> resource 

It would be an interesting *and* useful exercise for the list as a whole 
to try to develop a collection of these sorts of tricks, tips and helpful 

I fully agree. I am trying to make some resource files available 
which simulate the hypermail archive style. Hopefully I will have 
them finished in january next year. It would be of great help for 
other people to have some well documented resource files which are 
ready to run.

I hope I will be able to convince others to contribute their style 
files for the MHonArc community.


With best compliments
