Hypermail and MHonArc are the go-to tools for turning mailboxes into 
HTML monsters. There's Eyebrowse but that's all about throwing Java and 
databases at mail files and is rather more intensive on the server side 
than the mostly static output from Hypermail and MHonArc.

Making mailing list archives look like blog comments is a terrible way 
to present mailing list archives. If you're using a search engine or 
index then you're probably looking for a specific message and maybe the 
few around it for context. The blog approach presents everything as one 
big, continuous mass of messages which is not conducive to finding 
something specific.
