I've just discovered "-spammode", and I'd like to retoactively apply
it to my old archives--going back to those archived with MHonArc
I started using mhonarc at about 2.3, so I don't have any idea what'll
happen if you sic it on an archive that old, but I'd give a command-line
invocation with -editidx a try.
!!NO!! From RELNOTES:
==> IMPORTANT IF UPGRADING FROM v2.1.x OR EARLIER:
If you have archives created with v2.1.x, or earlier, you
must update the archives before using versions v2.2, or
To update your archives, you use the mha-dbedit program
using the def-mime.mrc in the examples directory. For example:
mha-dbedit -rcfile examples/def-mime.mrc \
Make sure that the mhonarc you are using is v2.2, or later.
Change the -rcfile and -outdir pathnames to reflect where
you are running mhonarc and where your archive is located,
Note, if your archives are using custom settings of
MIMEFILTERS, MIMEARGS, and/or CHARSETCONVERTERS resources,
you will need to create a variant version of def-mime.mrc
(included in the examples directory) to include your settings
and use the variant version when updating your archives.
After this, you can then run mhonarc with -editidx.
To be safe, make a copy of your original .mhonarc.db file.
