Even if Mailman3 will be able to tell you within the message itself what the
URL is to the same content in the archives, Mailman isn't going to strip off
the body of the message unless the logs are recognized as some sort of
"attachment" and you've turned on "scrub_nondigest".
What you guys really need is a document management system that has an e-mail
interface. Once the backup log has been put into the document management
system, it could send out an e-mail message with the URL to where the log is
stored, and that e-mail message could go out to the mailing list.
Myself, in managing the mailing lists and mail system for python.org (where
this mailing list is hosted), I run daily reports which send their output to
a private archived mailing list, where I'm the only subscriber. So, I get
to see the reports sent to me by e-mail, and I can go back in the archives
online if I need to pull out historical information from a while back.
But these are relatively short reports, not something nearly as massive as
