As others have pointed out, you can point (new) subscribers to the 
mailing list archive.

If you wanted to, you could set up the news gateway so that Maiman sends 
copies of posts to a news group on a news server and then have your 
(new) subscribers download individual messages from there.

(I suspect that it might even be possible to get something to extract 
messages from either the archive or the news group and send individual 
messages to the (new) subscribers upon request.)

Oh, don't worry, you are not alone in wanting this feature.  I've given 
it some thought too.  I'd love to find a way to ""request that 
individual messages are sent somewhere after the fact.  Once I figure 
this out, it would be nice to extend the "...-request at ..." handler to 
support this.
