Thanks for the reply and thanks for showing me a working link for HyperKitty.  I saw mention of HyperKitty on the net but didn't see any example screens, so I wasn't sure if it would be worth the trouble of downloading/installing or not.  It actually looks like the closest match to what I was looking for, but it's true that I don't know if it does automatic updates.

I'll check into HyperKitty.  Thanks!

I have an archive setup and it receives a copy of the messages fairly quickly, but it doesn't update automatically and also anyone looking at it would need to update their URL at least every month, since the messages are organized by month.
