And my responses at
still hold. Read the whole thread.

Note, this is quite doable in Mailman 3 as MM 3 messages contain an
Archived-At: header with a link to the archived message (this is not
possible to do in Mailman 2.1 for various technical reasons). You mite
consider submitting a feature request for this at

This is still tricky for 'plain' digests as by definition they don't
contain html and things like

web site. (Mark Sapiro)</a>

render like that and not as an active

lists.mailman3.org web site. (Mark Sapiro)

link. and things like

lists.mailman3.org web site. (Mark Sapiro)

look ugly even if the MUA renders the URL as an active link.

OTOH, in a MIME format digest, the TOC could be a text/html part which
would work.
