No, there isn't a built in way to do this.
I do it for my lists by sending the traffic over to a Windows 2000 machine,
then using the NT/2000 Indexing Service to index the messages. All of this
can be done in Unix as well, I just had the NT/2000 machine handy and was
familiar with the Indexing Service.
http://catfood.phred.org/query.asp shows what I have done.
MHonArc seems to provide search capabilities, but the sites that I've seen
setup with it only allow you to search within a given month. That is really
annoying for lists which have years of traffic.
