    IIRC, Mailman uses mbox for its archives.

    The release notes for 11.30 say:

    What will be the implications of this for Mailman on 11.32?

    I do confirm that Mailman has archives in mbox format per an 11.30.0.25 machine I checked:

    Code:
    root@sloth [/usr/local/cpanel/3rdparty/mailman/archives/private]# ls -lah
    total 32K
    drwxrws--x 8 mailman mailman 4.0K May 30 16:13 ./
    drwxrwsr-x 4 mailman mailman 4.0K May 26 11:59 ../
    drwxrwsr-x 2 mailman mailman 4.0K May 30 16:13 cpacct_testing.foo/
    drwxrwsr-x 2 mailman mailman 4.0K May 30 16:13 cpacct_testing.foo.mbox/
    drwxrwsr-x 2 mailman mailman 4.0K May 30 16:13 testing_testing.foo/
    drwxrwsr-x 2 mailman mailman 4.0K May 30 16:13 testing_testing.foo.mbox/
    drwxrwsr-x 2 mailman mailman 4.0K May 26 11:59 mailman/
    drwxrwsr-x 2 mailman mailman 4.0K May 26 11:59 mailman.mbox/
    I cannot answer your question at this point without further research, but I can confirm that mbox files do exist in the Mailman archives.
