I think MHonArc does a decent job of this. Would you mind checking
http://samba.cadcamlab.org/lists/ to see if you have adequate

Unfortunately To and Cc are axed at samba.org, courtesy of listproc.
Nothing I can do about that. (Fortunately, according to Tim Potter,
listproc's days at samba.org are numbered....)

MHonArc keeps all these. (All except followups-to. I can't tell if it
keeps that one because I don't have any examples anywhere in my samba
list archives. Either it's not a very popular header, or it too is
being filtered at samba.org.)

What we really need is a mail archive program that puts in a little
"send me this" button which e-mails the current message, in pristine
condition, back to you. Pristine except that it should add a header
like X-Request-IP: to make it easy to filter, in case of abuse.
Looks like a php+postgresql project. Wonder if it's been done....
