There are a couple of other archives, but neither of them include the
attachments.  (See the Squeak Email List link on the Swiki for info on
the various archives.)

Basically, I agree that the eGroups archive is worth keeping... it's the
most well-rounded of the three and the one that I use the most.

Also, I'm not really sure how someone could use eGroups to collect
listmembers addresses for spam, since people's email addresses are not
shown in the archived messages.  Or is the problem that someone could
create a temporary eGroups account to spam the list itself?  (We've
never had that problem with the Squeak list so far.)
