The built-in pipermail archives provide no such facility.  If you want
it, you're either going to have to hack the pipermail code to add this
feature - not trivial - or hook up with another archival mechanism.  I
know of some people who use MHonarc, and i understand hypermail is again
actively maintained, and i believe both can be hooked up via a regular
list subscription.  (If they respect the X-no-archive header, then
password reminders and so forth won't get archived, besides.)  For that
matter, if your lists are public you could even subscribe one of the
public maillist archive services, like egroups.com or reference.com....
