Let's first wait and see if I get this job done, I'm not yet quite 100% sure that it's going to be feasable, even with maximum non-manual handling. I've got a few ideas for usefull regrouping as a kind of context-sensitive help. Except that it'll be more like 'TIFF-sensitive' instead of context-sensitive, and more like 'knowledge base' instead of help. That is not quite the complete archive but is almost guaranteed to be feasable I think... So I guess something usefull is going to come out of this, anyhow, even though it may perhaps not be a completely restored archive for the last 15 years or so. Anyway, let's just wait and see first.


No pressure. Frankly if you could assemble the email, clean out the spam and make it available for a normal threaded archive I think that would be great. Even better if you can extract a few FAQs with answers.

As to the hosting... That may be the only part of the job that might be somewhat beneficial to me. I may want to take you up on the hosting offer, but I'm also wondering if you would mind me hosting the results myself. Even if I'm allowed to host it myself, it will - of course - be a completely free download, no strings or even advertising attached, except for the hosting domain name and maybe a single pointer to my site or something. If this is not acceptable, just say so, I'm not going to do anything on this project that either you or Andrey object to. Your approval is important to me.

I don't see any problem with your hosting a copy, or any reasonable use you put the email archive to. You have my complete approval.
