Hi Bob,

   MHonArc checks the Message-ID header to make sure that duplicate 
   messages aren't added to the archives multiple times.  Is it possible
   that the mbox file has duplicates?

   A quick check might be to do something like

      grep -i ^Message-ID: mbox | awk -F\< '{print $2}' | awk -F\> '{print $1}' | sort | uniq -c | sort -n

      formail -s formail -XMessage-ID < mbox | sort | uniq -c | sort -n

   and see if you get any with a value greater than 1 -- those would be
