Okay. The first one I have is from Dave at "Thu, 30 Jul 1998 10:14:38"
so I could do with the ones before that.

The archive I have stretches then to "Sat, 31 Aug 2002 23:49:27" and
then my current london.pm mailbox starts at "Sat, 13 Sep 2003 22:19:30"
so I'm missing about year and two weeks there (I was burgled just before
the latter date IIRC).

If anyone can bung me an archive of those missing bits it would be cool,
I'll probably need to de-dupe anyway so better to go with an overlap
rather than miss some. mbox or maildir is equally cool.

The current archive starts at "Fri Nov 11 12:27:05 2005" - so there is a
good chance we can have everything.  I guess the best bet would be to
make a list of message ids and having a couple of other people check
before we go live with this, e-mail being what it is I'm sure there are
missing ones in there.
