I don't believe Mailman currently implements a No Archive option - though

Subject: [Mailman-Users] Is there a "no-archive" option?

Two part question.

1) I tried a test message with the first line being NO ARCHIVE but that did

2) Regardless of the answer to 1), is there some code that will keep
"anything below this line" from ending up in the archived message? Example,

Anything below that line will show up in the message that gets sent to the
list, but will be excluded from the archive. Is there any similar function
for mailman lists?
