Accessing discussion list archives
Each discussion list has an archive of messages previously posted to the list. It is possible to browse or search for postings. To search, choose the list from which you wish to find archives, and click on Archives in the left-hand navigation. Enter a search term in the box. There is also an Advanced Search button that provides additional options.
If you'd rather browse by date, the calendar at the top of the Archives page shows archives by month and year back three years (ex 2007-2009); choose the month you're looking for and you can view all posts to that particular list during that month.
It is also possible to organize the postings by topic or by date by selecting either Chronological or Thread.
