@alis Yeah that seems to happen with very large archives :/ can you check the status of the import? A partial import is better than nothing, I guess.
@lj_writes Well I mean they're not my memories; it's for a community group I wasn't part of until (relatively) recently.
Mostly it's so we have records for the next time someone threatens to sue us... (Sadly an annual occurrence for Reasons I won't go into...)
@alis Oh, I thought it was in advance of the Yahoo! Groups deletions, but you have the .mbox file so I guess backup isn't a problem. Did your group migrate to another platform, if I may ask? Tabletop roleplaying theory and rules geeks were pretty active on Google+ until it folded, and I'm not sure the communities ever recovered though I did hear some of them moved to MeWe.
@lj_writes Yeah we're on Groups.io.
There is an option to import old Yahoo! stuff to G.io, but it requires a paid account so is quite pricey. Our group (which never has very much cash) decided against that so having an archive that can be referenced if required is the compromise position.
