When you joined the list, it sent you a welcome-message with a link to 
The second full sentence on that web page has a link to the archives.

If you look at the headers of any message to the list, you will find a bunch 
of stuff like this:

List-Id: Discussion of precise time and frequency measurement
List-Unsubscribe: <https://www.febo.com/cgi-bin/mailman/options/time-nuts>,
        <mailto:time-nuts-request at febo.com?subject=unsubscribe>
List-Archive: <http://www.febo.com/pipermail/time-nuts>
List-Post: <mailto:time-nuts at febo.com>
List-Help: <mailto:time-nuts-request at febo.com?subject=help>
List-Subscribe: <https://www.febo.com/cgi-bin/mailman/listinfo/time-nuts>,
        <mailto:time-nuts-request at febo.com?subject=subscribe>

The List-Archive URL will get you to the archives.  They are batched by month 
so it isn't easy to search the whole pile.  It is easy to follow a discussion 
once you find it.  Beware, a thread gets broken into several threads if the 
In-Reply-To header isn't supplied so you have to scan the top level.

You could download everything and search locally.  Fortunately, there is an 
easier way.  Google will search for you.  Just add >site:febo.com< to your 
search terms.  (I'm using >< as quote marks.  They aren't part of the search.)


That same pattern works for many email-lists.  You should probably get in the 
habit of saving the welcome messages.  They (generally) have everything you 

These are my opinions.  I hate spam.
