Thanks Earl, works a treat! Only trouble is, it seems the M/32 archives
don't have Message IDs or "In Reply to" fields, as all my threads say
there are (0) follow ups :(

You are right. Mercury does not log all headers in the message 
archive. I've discussed this with the author of Mercury already. 
I will see what I can do to improve the archive funtion of Mercury.

The "In Reply to" is produced by the mail client and not by the
mailserver. So if the client does not support it, there won't be
such a field.

I've mailed Gerry a copy of my hack for a mercury to MHonArc 
converter but since it is a hack which is not for the public, I've 
done that in a personal mail. When I have the time, I will clean up 
the converter and release it to the public.

Oh well, I've asked if the M/32 archive format can be changed :)

Well since it is not very high on the priority list, I wouldn't hold 
my breath for it.

With best compliments
