I've created a website for a club using SS, and everyone's very happy with it.
One feature that I'd like to implement is an archive of the club's mailing list. I can easily set up a mail account on the webserver to receive all mail traffic from the list, and what I'd like is a module to read the mail files for this accout in /var/spool/mail and create a searchable archive of the mailing list traffic on the website, either by reading the mailfiles directly, or extracting the sender, subject and body and putting it into the DB before deleting the mail.

Can this be done? Anyone willing to take up the mantle? I'd be willing to spend a few £££ on this if needs be. I just don't have the time to do any coding these days, and my coding is rusty to say the least.
