Message I've been digging around looking for the makings in preparation to
rolling my own mailing-list archive package, somewhat surprised that I
couldn't find a decent one in Java. Well, it took a while but
Eyebrowse finally popped up (I did a Google search on "java filesystem
search engine source", found Lucerne, the Lucerne page referenced
Eyebrowse).

It's looking like an excellent start -- I especially like the fact
that it works! I plan on grabbing it and using it as is for now, but
I'm wondering why JavaMail isn't in the mix (boy, I sure hope I didn't
miss it!)? There are freely available implementations of the mbox and
MH folder service providers, and I would think it would simplify
adding new folder styles, and even support for remote archives
(well... maybe not such a good idea ;). Then again, I know very
little about JavaMail, just started looking at it for these purposes a
few days ago... please straighten me out if it's got problems.

My scheme for building an archive package involved using as much
existing software as possible, so I was going to use the available
JavaMail service providers, Lucerne, etc. I had planned on writing a
simple low-performance JavaMail service provider for Outlook since I
want to be able to import Outlook file archives (hey, gotta take those
archives where you can find them ;).

If you'll forgive my pitifully brief look at the package, I'm
wondering if it's possible to run it as a pure Java system, no perl?
I'd planned on doing that if I had to write my own... am I missing
something? Don't get me wrong, I love Perl and wrote a LOT of it
during the last 6 or so years, but I like the solidity of Java.

Enough rambling,
