[Mailman-Users] Removing message(s) from List's Archives

You have to edit the mbox file in the archives/private/<listname.mbox>
directory, then delete the old html based archive files and regenerate
the archives using the bin/arch utility that is included with Mailman.  

Note: you should take your list off-line while doing this so that
nothing interferes with the rebuild of the archives.

Alternately (or until you have time to regenerate the archives), you can
simply delete the HTML link to the archived email from the html archive

BTW: I'm sure this is in the FAQ (see the bottom of any of the lists
emails for the http address for the FAQ)

Good Luck
