Make the archive private on the list's Archiving Options page. This
will remove the symlinks from the archives/public/ directory and force
archive access to be via http://example.com/mailman/private. The links
on admin and listinfo pages will use the private url, so everything
will work except perhaps for old links that people have saved or
posted in messages.
