"Hypermail is a program that takes a file of mail messages in UNIX mailbox format"BrothersoftEditor: Hypermail is a program that takes a file of mail messages in UNIX mailbox format and generates a set of cross-referenced HTML documents. Each file that is created represents a separate message in the mail archive and contains links to other articles, so that the entire archive can be browsed in a number of ways by following links. Archives generated by Hypermail can be incrementally updated, and Hypermail is set by default to only update archives when changes are detected.Each HTML file that is generated for a message contains (where applicable): * the subject of the article, * the name and email address of the sender, * the date the article was sent, * links to the next and previous messages in the archive, * a link to the message the article is in reply to, and * a link to the message next in the current thread. In addition, Hypermail will convert references in each message to email addresses and URLs to hyperlinks so they can be selected. Email addresses can be converted to mailto: URLs or links to a CGI mail program.To complement each set of HTML messages, four index files are created which sort the articles by date received, thread, subject, and author. Each entry in these index files are links to the individual articles and provide a bird's-eye view of every archived message.
