Here's the catch- mailman is a mailing list manager (or remailer, if you 
prefer), not a message storage system, so it doesn't -have- a persistent 
message store. There may be a list archive, but that isn't something that 
would be easily accessible on a per message ID basis (w/o a bunch of extra 
hackery).  If the existing archive function was replaced by a database-type 
thing, that could allow the sort of access that I think you want, but that's 
also outside the scope of list management. You might want to look into the 
replacement archivers to see if they do what you want.
