Instead of the Big Ass .mbox file, /home/mailman/archives/private/thelist/Week-of-Mon-XXXXXXX.txt ? Does that file have enough header information? I say this because its already rotating once a week, and on average is only a MB in size.. If that doesn't work out, I'll try to put something toegether that rotates the .mbox once a week .djc.
