I know ot two sites where you can search the content of mailing lists.
1. http://marc.theaimsgroup.com/ (but no ubuntu lists are archived in
there, so in this particular case it will be of little help).
2. http://search.gmane.org/ (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 !
