To my knowledge, no, Hypermail does not of itself support searches (I'll look pretty stupid if someone added that feature since v1.02...;-)

Since it's your system and you can get at the files, you can use a filesystem-based search, or of course a Web robot, or keep submitting to Altavista/Lycos etc...

I put together a (painfully slow) grep-based thing at e.g. (try e.g. "COMDEX")

Something with an indexing engine would probably be better for a large list; "glimpse" perhaps
