A concrete example. Mhonarc archive message msg00713.html corresponds to
raw message #15; msg00714.html to #16; msg00715.html to #17. Mhonarc
receives a new message, which it writes to msg00716, and $RAW-MSG-NUM$ is
set to "18". Mhonarc writes msg00716.html correctly, but it also touches
msg00715.html and msg00714.html to update their links -- and in doing so,
re-generates the HeadBodySep with a $RAW-MSG-NUM$ of "18" in all of them.
Any suggestions? Is there a part of the message where I can be sure the
existing variables won't be reinterpreted when the message is touched or
Use the message-ID. I.e. Have the link reference a CGI program that
is given the message-ID, and any other relevant arguments, and the
CGI program resolves the message-ID to the raw mail message.
This kind of setup is what Achim does with his archives at
There are other solutions that would require changes to MHonArc.
I can elaborate on possibilities if you are interested in exploring
