(sorry for the delayed response)

Well, currently I have mboxes and I have the output HTML files converted from
mboxes to HTML by hypermail. Of course everything is posssible but I'm not a
database guy so if you think converting the files to something else and
working with that is the better way... then please feel free to work on that!

How do you want to proceed? Would it be good enough if I provide a set of mbox
"examples" for you to work with, or have you any other preferred way?
