I think MHonArc does a decent job of this.  Would you mind checking to see if you have adequate

Unfortunately To and Cc are axed at, courtesy of listproc.
Nothing I can do about that.  (Fortunately, according to Tim Potter,
listproc's days at are numbered....)

MHonArc keeps all these.  (All except followups-to.  I can't tell if it
keeps that one because I don't have any examples anywhere in my samba
list archives.  Either it's not a very popular header, or it too is
being filtered at

What we really need is a mail archive program that puts in a little
"send me this" button which e-mails the current message, in pristine
condition, back to you.  Pristine except that it should add a header
like X-Request-IP: to make it easy to filter, in case of abuse.

Looks like a php+postgresql project.  Wonder if it's been done....
