    I have a customer who just complained that his private moderated mailman email list, which has private archives available are showing up in google searches.

    I took a look and he's right.

    If I go to the index page of the mailman email list, I can't view the archive index unless I login as a valid user that is on the list or the administrator/moderator of the list.

    However, if I search for one of the user's name which is on the list at google.com, I am able to find links to the archives of the list.

    This only works because the user has a very unique name. His name doesn't show up too many places on the internet.

    How can I fix this issue?

    I double checked in the list admin to make sure that the list archives were PRIVATE.

    Sorry to open such an old thread, but I am now experiencing this issue across my servers as well.

    Anyone have any suggestions?
