The one here at w3.org seems to be flakey, and the one at
eit.com doesn't seem to be updated any more.

That's not quite true. It's painful, but if you really need an old
message, send a message:

	To: www-html-request@w3.org
	Subject: archive help

This archive server knows the following commands:

get filename ...
ls directory ...
egrep case_insensitive_regular_expression filename ...

Aliases for 'ls': dir, directory, list, show

yourself no more than maxfiles files will be returned per reques
Egrep supports most common flags.
