Does your list have local archives in addition to archiving at
mail-archive.com? If so, you probably want to remove it from the archive

There are various ways to do this. Some are relatively easy, but may
have undesirable side effects. Some are very involved.

See <https://wiki.list.org/x/4030681> for more information.
