Private archives are available to any list member who authenticates with
her list password.

There is no setting that makes an archive available to the list admin only.

Put the following 3 lines in a file

archive = 1
archive_private = 1
archive_volume_frequency = 1

Then run the following shell script

#! /bin/sh
for list in `/path/to/mailman/bin/list_lists --bare` ; do
/path/to/mailman/bin/config_list -i /path/to/above/file $list

>> 2 - We want to purge all our existing archives older than a certain date.

See the script at <http://www.msapiro.net/scripts/prune_arch>
