You will need to create a custom filter that understand pipermail
HTML pages.  Namazu already has one for MHonArc archives, but
I do think there are any filters for other mail archivers.

It appears that pipermail does not clearly delimit message header
information, but at a minimum, you should be able to get namazu
to only index the message body.
