http://mailman.intermedia.net/pipermail/grassroots-marketing/ worked for 
me. It is the arget of the link on 
under the heading "How to see prior postings".

also works OK

But http://mailman.intermedia.net/pipermail/grassroots-marketing does not 
work. If it were me, I would ask the ISP to put a RewriteRule into the 
Apache httpd.conf file so that it did.
