Follow the instructions to get hold of the archive messages you need. For example, I sent an email to the following address to retrieve mails 43413 to 43512:

vim-get.43413_43512@vim.org

They will be returned as individual attachments to a single mail, one reply per request.

Save all the attachments in a new temporary directory, say /tmp/temp.

Download the following script: http://kmail.kde.org/unsupported/xfmail2mbox.sh

Run the script, passing the aforementioned directory as an argument:

$ xfmail2mbox /tmp/temp

where $ indicates a shell command.

This will create a file called /tmp/temp.mbox, an mbox format file of emails found in /tmp/temp
