Re: [swish-e] searching individual mailman list archives with swish-e

Perhaps the easiest way that I can think of is to make sure each email
message has a field identifying the mailing list. Then, when you want
to limit a search to only the messages of that list, just pre- or
post-pend " AND X-LIST" to any query.
