It should work but please keep in mind its 8506 files of mail
It tooke me 10 minutes to run tar cvzf $home/9list.tgz /n/list/9front/

And I stopped it early with only 1067 files. 

I untarred in $home/9list

you can run touch $home/9list/L.mbox

upas/fs -f $home/9list

and run acme with Mail like normal

I suspect its taking a long time, also you won't see data in /mail/box/glenda/mbox

When you run upas/fs for lack of better word binds to /mail/fs/mbox

On my laptop I run mail like normal to talk to thinktanktworkspaces.com and it shows about

cpu% pwd
/mail/fs/mbox
cpu% ls -l | wc -l
    133

but in another terminal on a different namespace that mounted 9list is reads

upas/fs -f $home/9list
cpu% pwd
/mail/fs/mbox
cpu% ls -l | wc -l
   1063

So don't forget about namespace stuff.
