ANN: mailbox_date_trimmer 1.0.1 -- Correct emails' date headers in a mailbox archive.

Discussion in 'Python' started by Grzegorz Adam Hankiewicz, Jul 26, 2003.

  1. Changes

    Improved documentation. Removed stdin pipe detection hack. Many
    small date parsing errors found and fixed after running the
    program over 500 MB of mailing list archives.

    Scenario description

    You are a mailing list administrator, or you are somebody who
    keeps mailing list archives for a user group, or you just have
    a fetish for email archives. Now, don't you always wonder why
    after running Hypermail or MHonArc on your archives you always
    have some emails which date back to 1980 or far away in the
    future like 2011, even though you started collecting emails in
    the year 2000 and it's still this very same year? While there
    are many answers to this question, there is a very easy way to
    fix many, if not all, of these messages, which results in a much
    more consistent email archive without broken discussion threads.

    Software requisites

    This software requires Python (http://www.python.org). It is
    known to work with versions 1.5.2 or 2.2.3. You also need my
    mailbox_reader module, which you should be able to get from:
