4.3. Mailman's internal archiver (Pipermail) doesn't understand MIME! What can I do?

Mailman 2.0.* uses a version of Pipermail to archive messages that doesn't understand MIME. If upgrading to Mailman 2.1.* is not an option, there's not much you can do about this other than using an external archiver.

Suggested external archivers:

MHonArc: http://www.mhonarc.org/
HyperMail: http://www.hypermail.org/

MHonArc is probably the most commonly used, and is certainly the most flexible and configurable of the current Open Source mail archivers.

Example MIME messages archived under MHonArc:

http://www.kanga.nu/archives/MUD-Dev-L/1998Q2/msg00854.php
http://www.kanga.nu/archives/MUD-Dev-L/1998Q2/msg00893.php
http://www.kanga.nu/archives/MUD-Dev-L/1998Q2/msg01256.php
http://www.kanga.nu/archives/MUD-Dev-L/2000Q3/msg00661.php

One of the other significant advantages of MHonArc is that it properly renders and displays messages written in national charactersets. This can be particularly valuable/important for non-english lists and authors.
