You can search them locally.  Download them thus:

    wget --page-requisites --https-only --wait=5 \

(Remove the "--wait=5" if you're in a rush, but otherwise leave it in to
be polite to server hosts & other users.  Remove "--page-requisites" if
you don't want to preserve the URL/directory structure.)

Then either:

-  zgrep the monthly archives, or

-  load the monthly archives in a MUA that can handle compressed
   mailboxes (e.g. Mutt) and search from there, or

-  etc.

Alternatively, you can use a third-party search engine (Google,
DuckDuckGo, Startpage, Bing, whatever).  Search engines vary in their
syntax, but try e.g. searching for

    foo inurl:lists.linuxaudio.org/archives/linux-audio-user/

where "foo" is the term of interest.
