The key is that you have to know what value to insert into List-Archive. But it dovetails into a topic I've talked about before. I would love to have some way to calculate a unique archiving ID (more unique than Message-ID <wink>) that two uncommunicative systems could use to calculate a url relative to List-Archive. Then Mailman could insert a header and/or footer text in the list copy that points to the message in the archive.
