in reply to Organising mbox into threads?

Thanks for the help guys - much appreciated :) - I wasn't expecting such a collection of comprehensive and speedy responses ;)

Fletch - I hadn't seen that module before - however I had read the article regarding threading that it links to. Don't know how I managed to miss the module... Thanks for pointing it out

ruzam - Thanks for the code - I had a quick play with it, and couldn't get it working as I wanted. I'll have another crack at it, as I have only looked at it briefly.

esper - Sorry, should have been clearer in my original posting - I did create a hash, where the keys were every message-id and tried your first suggestion - but it was indeed too slow. I didn't think of creating a 2nd hash containing the thread's head. I'll give that a shot, sounds like it could work!

roboticus - Unfortunately, Yahoo groups threaded view goes by subject rather than message-id - giving me some really weird threads as there are thousands of messages with the subject "hi" in my mbox ;) - Also, it took me 3 weeks to get the messages downloaded, as yahoo prevent you from accessing pages too quickly, eventually banning your IP from the whole of yahoo groups! - I put a delay in my download script to get around this, but I'm not going to set the download going again!

parv - Thanks for the code - I will test it, and see what I can do with it. I've never used mutt before, so it may take a while for me to try you other suggestions. If I can't get it working any other way, then I'll give it a shot.
