[Mailman-Users] Finding the recipients for a given archived email

I have a mailing list whose membership changes frequently. I want to
find out who received a two-month-old email in the archives. In other
words, I want to know the list membership at the time that message was

How can I do this?

I realize I could look at sendmail logs (if they went back that far),
but is there an "pure Mailman" way to do this?

I believe (not sure) that the vette(?) log keeps track of
subscribes/unsubscribes, so I could theoretically reconstruct the
list, starting with the current membership and working backward. Is
this possible? Is there an easier way?

We're just a Bunch Of Regular Guys, a collective group that's trying
to understand and assimilate technology. We feel that resistance to
new ideas and technology is unwise and ultimately futile.
