OK, I remember now. The problem wasn't symlinks but that mhonarc generates URLs relative to the current directory. If we have message-id files outside the directory, links like "Thread Next" will not work. We could try to change those to absolute with a script. The community archives are going to have the same problem. -- Bruce Momjian <[EMAIL PROTECTED]> http://momjian.us EnterpriseDB http://postgres.enterprisedb.com + If your life is a hard drive, Christ can be your backup. + -- Sent via pgsql-patches mailing list (email@example.com) To make changes to your subscription: http://www.postgresql.org/mailpref/pgsql-patches
