I think two different things are getting mixed up here.  MHonArc
archives are not logs, therefore, using log rotating software will
not work with mhonarc archives.

Sorry for any confusion. I used 'logs' above to refer to 'archived email' 
not the archive files generated and maintained by mhonarc. For eg. I keep
my list email archived by month. The saved email for the current month is
stored in <list_name>-arc and previous months are stored by name 
(june2003-arc, may2003-arc etc.). What I was trying to say is that
this 'rotation' of archived email can be done by software that
handles other logs. Creating date-based archives from mhonarc will
have to be done in your script (or by mharc which I have not used).

I hope this makes matters clearer.
