Public mailing list archives! Subscribe a gmail account to your public mailing list. It would put the whole mailing list in a single folder in gmail and allow list members to easily search it for stuff and see conversations. Since it's a public mailing list, there wouldn't be any huge privacy problems associated with feeding all the data to gmail.
The biggest problems would be that you wouldn't be able to see the archive unless you had the password, and having the password would also let you send mail from the archive address.
