hello.  i'm a swish-e newbie.  i have downloaded, built, and
installed the latest swish-e tarball.  what i would like to do
is index a mailing list archive.

the archive is a set of unix
mailbox files, one for each month, going back 15 years.  is
there a way to configure swish-e (either the search or indexing
or both) so that i can search for individual messages within
the archive?  for example, i might want to search for messages
containing the both of the words "bush" and "bike".  but doing
this the naive way might turn up a folder where one message
contains the word "bush" and another message contains "bike".

can swish-e do this?  is there some other archive format
(other than one file per message) that would facilitate using
swish to do this kind of thing?

thanks in advance for any advice.
