this question has been asked before . Mailman can include various
list URLs in the footer , can it also include a link to the exact
archive URL for the current email?
Judging by the wishlist, this feature doesn't yet exist . In absence
thereof, what do you guys do to determine the archive URL for an email?
Background: I often find myself referring people to our Mailman archives
when there were previous emails on the topic in question. My current
workflow looks like this:
1) Find email in $MUA (mutt in my case) where search is powerful
and close to second nature.
2) Use google to find the relevant archive URL (site:$archive "$topic").
The second step feels disconnected and would be redundant if the mail
itself had a link to the archived message.
P.S.: Only found out about the wishlist after re-reading . Would be a
good candidate to be included in the mailman-users intro text  (next
to FAQ and searchable archives).
