	*Hypermail* is a program that takes a file of mail messages in
UNIX mailbox format and generates a set of cross-referenced HTML documents.
Each file that is created represents a separate message in the mail archive
and contains links to other articles, so that the entire archive can be
browsed in a number of ways by following links.
	Hypermail was originally written in Common Lisp and has been
completely rewritten in C.
	Here's some of what Hypermail can do:

	* Hypermail archives can be updated incrementally by one article
	* Archives and articles can be taken from standard input
	* Archives indexes sorted by date received, thread, subject,
	  and author are automatically generated
	* "Next:", "Previous:", "In reply to:", and "Next in thread:"
	  links in articles are automatically generated
	* URL references in articles are converted to hyperlinks
	* Email addresses are converted to hyperlinks - these links can go
	  to mailto: or a custom-defined program
	* Using the <html> tag, HTML passages in articles can be marked
	  so they can be parsed
	* Hypermail can take settings from a configuration file and/or
	  environment options

	The source code comes with a man page, HTML documentation, and a
CGI mail gateway program that can be used with Hypermail.
	The latest documentation can be found at:

	You can FTP Hypermail from:

	A binary for SunOS 4.1.3 is available at the site.
