It is true that you need at least shell access with write access to
Mailman to import archives, but if you have standard pipermail
archives, you can 'export' the archives by visiting a URL similar to


whether or not this appears as a link on the archive index page. This
URL is the list's cumulative archive mbox file in standard Unix mbox

If you are taken to a login page, you will have to explicitly go to the
URL again after logging in.
