using mhonarc to archive mailinglist

Dear people,

Maybe stupid, maybe not (I think the first) .. I've retrieved all my
yahoo-groups archive mail and saved it to a MBOX file. 

41.000 messages, 70Mb

Now: using Mhonarc to put it in a nice archive way. 

My index files get TOO big (5 to 7Mb for index.html/thread.html/date.html is
too much)

With the note that it should be not too big ..

Right now I had some 'crashes'@ my linux box. Now when using the mhonarc
commandline it's trying to lock the stuff but it fails, using -nolock solves

What kind of rc file can I use: the common.mrc used right now gives me a
nice index.html
however: it's too big ..

Cause everytime it reads the mbox file (70Mb, and outputting 41.000 messages
.. )

Thanks for your help and cooperation.
