No. There are no email commands for retrieving archived messages.

The pipermail web archive has periodic pseudo-mailbox (.txt and/or
.txt.gz) files and there is normally a global archive mailbox in the
file archives/private/LIST.mbox/LIST.mbox that may be linked from the
archive table of contents and can normally be retrieved via a URL like
<http://www.example.com/mailman/private/LIST.mbox/LIST.mbox>, but
there is no mechanism to retrieve messages from the archive via email
