I have several crontab entries like this

0 0 * * * (cd /virtual/ && 
/usr/local/perl580/bin/mariachi -i /usr/local/siesta/archive/ 
-o archives -n ' - the archives' >/dev/null 2>&1)

For a while now I've wanted to do a ground up rewrite of Mariachi to 
make it smarter about caching and lazy generation. Poke me hard enough 
and I may do that soon since I appear to have some tuits at the moment.

An archive of messages is created for each list as long as you have the 
Archive plugin set for the post queue of your list (which, from your 
next question it looks like you've done).

Ah, that's because it's setting them up as a Maildir - it doesn't really 
matter whether they're in new/ or cur/
