The site: trick  has worked for me quite well for long time:
Jeremiah's pointed on two front-ends to the same data, best option I know too.
It is not ideal in though, so it is not a problem to setup ML
mirror on Gmane. Similarly, Nabble works fairly well as a Forum
frontend to ML. 
I'm a member of OSGeo Foundation where mailing lists  only are provided.
For those who prefer forum frontent, we have the whole hierarchy mirrored
at Nabble. It's worked really well so far.
