If the page you're referring to is:


then the answer is, strangely, no.  I tried searching for a few previous 
posts of mine (as a test) and couldn't find anything.  I could have sworn 
that I had searched the bioperl mail lists using this interface before!

The Google option works well (thanks Barry; I didn't think of trying it 
that way), but shouldn't there be a way to search through the archives from 
the open-bio interface?
