I should clarify here. These email messages are being managed by ezmlm
(mailing list software.)

Now that is funny!

The format that the email is saved in is an incremental setup.
Individual folders contain messages numbered 01 through 99.

My brain is starting to hurt again, and I'm starting to doubt whether
I can really get this environment working optimally :( The learning
curve here for me is huge, and my lack or perl/scripting knowledge is
rearing its head all over the place. *sigh* But, this is closer than
anything anything we've had since I've started managing these
archives. Maybe a good nights rest will help.
I'll report my future stumblings. Thanks for the pointers!
