This setting should do it. It should cause the
archives/public/<listname> symlink to be removed so the 'pipermail'
URL no longer works and access is through the private CGI only.

If you 'tested' by visiting the archive immediately after changeing the
option, you were already logged in as the admin so you didn't have to
log in again.
