I did what you said, the only problem is I cannot save the raw file after
editing it, I am NOT SU on this system, I have SSH access to get to the
files but they are Owned and grouped by "mailman" so I cannot modify the
file.  Like I said, There should be a way from the Admin screen to DELETE
these and it was a REAL OVERSIGHT not to include it for most people that
have the mail list available to them but not SU access.

You need to do a couple of things:

1) go into ~mailman/archives/public(or private)/listname.mbox
2) edit the listname.mbox in that directory so the message isn't in the
raw file any more.
3) go into ~mailman/bin and do a ./arch --wipe listname to rebuild the
archives in pipermail.

If you're not using pipermail, you'll have to follow your archiver
