Take a look at mha-decode.

Thanks Earl, it works a treat! Even gives all the word docs their
correct names. One small error is that it said "Invalid Date 1900, using
current instead". Any idea what caused that?

You probably have a message with a screwy data.  Since MHonArc
stores dates in Unix time(2) format, a message's date can
only go back to 1970; which is a reasonable limitation since
email did not exist before then.

Wrt mha-decode, you can safely ignore date warnings since no
archiving is done.
