See the FAQ at <http://wiki.list.org/x/jYA9>.

More specifically, assuming you're only concerned about English
language, find Mailman's templates/ directory.

Create templates/site/ and templates/site/en/ (these should be mode
drwxrwsr-x and group mailman).

Copy templates/en/article.html to templates/site/en/article.html.

Edit the META tag in templates/site/en/article.html.

If you have non-English language lists, do the same for the other

Stop Mailman.

Backup archives.

Rebuild archives - e.g.

#! /bin/sh
cd /path/to/mailman
for list in `bin/list_lists --bare` ; do
  bin/arch --wipe $list

Start Mailman.
