Create a Mailman list, subscribe the Mailman list address to the 
original list.  I don't think you even have to subscribe the original 
to Mailman (if you do, set it for No Mail to avoid infinite loops). 
You should be able to set Mailman to accept all mail from the 
original list.

It'll be automatically archived.
