We have a local archive here at W3C, though everything before a
few months ago got deleted in a disk crash. (I plan to troll places
like EIT to rebuild the archive as part of my "history of the web"
skunkworks project... stay tuned for details.)

The mailing list software we installed a while back (SmartList) supports
access to the local archive via email. I have never used it, but I 
gather it works:

Try sending a message with "help" in the subject to:

Well, did you send a check with your email message? No? You mean you
don't pay EIT _anything_ for tech support? You do have a tech support
contract with them, right? I mean: you do have _some_ reason to act
like a dissatisfied paying customer, right?
