I'm not so sure about that but I'll take your word for it.
I looked at this issue before we moved to mailman but found no obvious
I searched on google and came up with a couple of interesting threads:

So for now we have the following choices:
1. stop using pipermail to archive and be happy with the yahoo
archives. I can do that pretty easily.
2. Find a solution to this problem and let me know.
3. Live with it.
I think it would be better to use IITM instead of ad-infested
YahooGroups (maybe use that as a backup). What I'll try to do
is figure out a way to get Mailman to discard the hostname part
of the email address in public archives.
