Have you considered switching over to something like Phorum?
The blurb on the phorum.org webpage states:
Phorum is a web based message board written in PHP. Phorum is designed with
high-availability and visitor ease of use in mind. Features such as mailing
list integration, easy customization and simple installation make Phorum a
powerful add-in to any website.
There are quite a few customisations available and I think it might suit the
etrax mailing list.
You could set it up to provide access only via the web, or only allow
posting new messages via
the web. I think it can be configured or customised to prevent the email
or if you want it available then only show it to authenticated users.
