Ooops.  I think you're right!  :-(

I was using the Google groups service, which is linked off the page:
"Inportant: Currently the Samba mailing list archives hosted here on 
do not support searching.  However, you can access a searchable copy of the 
archives at,, and"

However, it appears that something broke the Google archiving service in July
