Some people keep every e-mail they receive, excepting stuff that they 
delete immediately. Where I have subscribed to mailing lists, I 
normally have archives that are almost complete, the gaps being due 
to things like ISP problems or, sometimes, system crashes. Other 
subscribers may have those missing posts. So, if those archives were 
important, it might be possible to reconstruct them....

(An archive of even a moderately active list can represent many 
thousands of hours of work. It is a shame when such is lost....)
