You can also get a copy of the list sent to you by using the e-mail 
interface.  See FAQ 3.62 at

Mailman was not designed as a drop-in replacement for Yahoo!Groups. 
See FAQ 1.26 at 

It also was not designed to be used in a hosting environment.  See 
FAQ 1.32 at 

That said, we recognize that users want such features regardless, 
hence the Mailman RFE page at SourceForge.  And we'll do our best to 
implement the features we consider to be most important, as our time 
and other resources allow.

Of course, this is a purely volunteer-supported open source project, 
so if there's some feature you have a burning desire to have 
implemented then the easiest way to get that into the standard code 
base is for you to get (or pay) someone else to do that for you, and 
then contribute that code back to our project.  Then we can look at 
that code and determine whether or not it can be incorporated into an 
upcoming version.
