Presenting email archives

Just a quick thought. Am wondering whether some of the tools for presenting mailing list archives might be adapted to present personal or organisational mailboxes. Maybe something like MHonArc?

I don't see why not! :-) It is all just text manipulation after all. I dunno how, but if we did htmlise emails, we could also add linked data to the output, allowing Semantic Web-like queries?

I noticed that you can also open email file formats direct into Evolution and use that to view the mail archive - might be another way to present an email archive to a researcher in an Outlook-like (and thus perhaps more authentic) tool.
