I believe http://xml-archive.webweaving.org/sys/ will get you what you want,
but I don't really like the following statement from mail-archive.com's FAQ:
------------
How long do you keep the archives? 
First, there is no guarantee on how long the archives will be up - they
could go off line at any time The service went through a six month
shakedown, completed in September 1998. During this period The Mail Archive
proved successful technically, and more importantly, helpful to a number of
people. 
Thus, archiving services are planned to continue indefinitely. At present
projected volumes, there is no need to remove archived material. Do not,
however, misconstrue these intentions with a warranty of any kind. We
reserve the right to discontinue service at any time with no warning
whatsoever. 
------------
To me, no warning whatsoever is unacceptable.

Man, i've said before, if someone can get me an archived mbox of the
messages (say, the web-weaving guys), I'll be happy to set up an archive
at mail-archive.com. The search interface doesn't suck too bad and it's
free.
