Project Description

I have an .mbox file representing the archives of a mailing list which ran from 1999 until 2004. I would like to import this into WordPress using the WordPress eXtended RSS (WXR) file format. All articles will be dropped into a WordPress Category called "FOIB" and the author will be Ian (the Admin account within WordPress). I would like for any MIME attachments to be converted and uploaded with each posting as WordPress attachments, and I would like to obscure any email addresses with something like username [at] host [dot] com. It's obviously very important to preserve the date of the posting. Finally, any links contained within messages should be automatically wrapped with anchor link tags so that they link to outside URLs. This should be pretty easy for anyone with an understanding of XML, Wordpress, and some programming talent (of which I have very little).
