Wow - this time I found the right words! Threaten to delete something
works ;-)
I will go through the mails in more detail tomorrow at work to find
the most suitable solution. Volunteers still wanted - the call isn't

Ok - this is only the minimum space required to 'save the history'.
The web archive needs more disk space (I can't figure it out right
now), since there is one file (+ possible attachments) per mail plus
index files. I will check tomorrow. Building the web archive will be
straight forward using hypermail (I am not using it right now for the
archive) and mail filtering using procmail is easy, too (I was not able
to use it for the archive up to now).
Again - more details tomorrow,
thanks for your interest,
