Import from Google Groups

The Usenet archive at Google Groups allows lookup by message ID and can show the raw post source, like this.

It’s more or less mbox format, but after downloading I can’t get EF to import it as anything but plain text. Changing the extension or adding a fake From line at the top doesn’t help.

To be considered an mbox, a file needs to begin with “From ” (and have “From ” at the beginning of each message). When I changed the first line of your file to “From ???@???” EagleFiler imported it as a mailbox.

Indeed. Don’t remember how mine was different.

Maybe I’ll get around to scripting that :slight_smile:
