Sympa (the mailing-list manager) can send you digests of previous posts with the
GET command (also useful the
The messages are not in mbox format that could be processed directly by swaml, but as a multipart digest email containing all the past emails sent to the list as MIME attachments.
I adapted the mailextract.py script (here’s the patch) to produce a file that’s almost a mbox, which can then be processed by formail (a procmail‘s command, with
formail -ds) to reconstruct a proper mbox.
Here’s then the command-line to obtain a mbox :
python mailextract.py -u source_of_get-ed_email | formail -ds >archive.mbox
Then swaml can be used to process that mbox, in order to obtain RDF documents for the mailing-list posts.
