This happened on another group that was archived on Yahoo groups, and
someone on the group preserved the archives on their own system, on a web
page, so that forum members could access it and search for topics.  Another
member provided a mirror archive also.  I don't know enough about computers
to know exactly what they did (email taxes my limits.)

I don't know what other possibilities there are, but apparently dealing with
Yahoo isn't one of them.
