OK, I figured it out. Sorry to waste bandwidth and maillist space.
Maybe what I found will help others ...
Maybe it's 'native' to the Mac, but imapmbox format includes a
sub-directory called 'CachedMessages' and THIS folder is in a format
Mhonarc can digest!
So, after copying a local 'imapmbox' to a Desktop folder, I can use the
following command to archive:
mhonarc -outdir ~/Desktop/irus_test/jamming
Now to figure out how to automate it [cron] and start banging on the
some maillists I host!
Oh yea, I also have to figure out how to change the format of output so
I can see the date of each message -- otherwise you're kind of lost --
and how to integrate a search capability!
One step at a time ...

I've got Mhonarc working, thanks to Lasar Liepins
<lasar(_at_)liepins(_dot_)net>, but now I'm not able to 'convert' my .imapmbox
formatted mail folders!
Does anybody know the difference in mbox and imapmbox? Is there a way
to get them to work with Mhonarc?
