I use the patches to Mailman for ht://dig and MHonArc. 
 ht://dig provides searching.  They work OK.

But in order to use any of these patches you must have 
access to the Mailman source code _and_ shell access to 
the server with permissions to compile and install code. 
 If you are using Plesk you most likely do not have this 
level of access and these patches will not be useful.
