This has been discussed before on this list. There is a recent thread

There is also an existing RFE at

Basically, it is not possible to do this given current Mailman
architecture. Archiving is handed off to a separate queue handled by a
separate qrunner so it isn't possible for the post delivery path to
know what the archive URL will be.

Many advantages would accrue, this being one of them, if archiving were
changed so that a unique archive URL is calculated from the content of
the message, but this is still in the future.
