I know ot two sites where you can search the content of mailing lists.

1. (but no ubuntu lists are archived in
there, so in this particular case it will be of little help).

2. (where ubuntu lists ARE featured). I can
search the ubuntu-users list there with more options than in the
original archives, providing "gmane.linux.ubuntu.user" as the group
designation. It works !
