The "download the archives in mbox format" link on and pages for all earlier periods (going back two decades) points to, which does not appear to be active (it times out every time I try to connect to it).  The same link on and pages for all later periods points to, which works.

The same break happens in the same places for the archives of the groff-commit and bug-groff lists.  I didn't check any other lists, but it's plausible the problem exists across the board.

Can the "mbox format" links on these older pages be updated?  Alternately, can the old link redirect to the new one, if there's a way to configure an ftp:// URL to redirect to an http:// one?  Thanks.
