Ah, I didn't realise that majordomo let you lookup archives via
email -- thanks for the pointer.

Ooops!  That should have been ".com".  It's a free service which
creates a searchable archive of a mailing list on the web.  It's very
administratively easy - you just subscribe a special address at their
site to the mailing list and the rest is automatic.  It also does
things like stripping posters' email addresses from the archives, and
doesn't seem to be a spam-risk.  But, with majordomo already giving
access to the archives, it might be superfluous.

Cheers,
Luke
