We need to improve that (suggestions welcome, by the way)

Unfortunately as things stand, there are two problems:

- there's not really a search interface; you can go to individual months
and poke through that months' messages, which is a pain:

https://lists.iotivity.org/pipermail/iotivity-dev/

maybe this external site will prove helpful:

https://www.mail-archive.com/iotivity-dev@lists.iotivity.org/

I haven't tried searching here

- messages in heavily styled email format (Outlook in default mode, and
from a certain company's internally developed mail system) don't survive
the archiving process and end up with the styled parts stripped out, so
a good percentage of the archived messages are unreadable. This is
intentional on the part of pipermail, which was written in a world where
one can require submitters to use plain-text emails, but doesn't seem to
work for IoTivity too well as we can't get people to stop using the
styled formats.
