FWIW I disagree with Russ - the Web is really better at this stuff in terms
of (a) scaling up to large, long-lived lists, (b) sophisticated searching
(even, or especially, via Google) and (c) flexibility of human interface.
And I say this as an avid IMAP user.
The meta-lesson, if you will, is that you should store your list archives
in the most presentation-independent format possible, so as to preserve
your options when you change your mind every five years, or when archive
browsing technology leaps. Don't cook messages permanently into HTML pages.
