As it currently exists, Mailman can't do this because the archiving function 
happens after the message is sent out to the subscribers, and therefore 
Mailman cannot know in advance what the URL would be.  If you move the 
archiving function earlier in the pipeline, then you could know what the URL 
is when you send out the message.

But I still think that what you really need is a proper document management 
system with an e-mail interface.  Using Mailman for this function is just 
.... well, maybe not quite "Wrong" with-a-capital-W, but it's certainly not 
what Mailman was designed for.
