Why not search the Mailman FAQ. You will probably find 
which page offers other options than htdig.

Of course, Mailman being Open Software and you being a clever person, 
you are always free to integrate some other, superior search-engine and 
contribute your experience to the community.

Always worth searching the searchable mailman-users archive (see link 
at bottom of this email) but as the Mail Archives uses htdig you will 
probably judge the results as inadequate.

Contribution: we are all welcome to our own opinion, no matter how 
irrational it is.
