The email list was previously run via http://www.tip.net.au/mailman/listinfo/rainbowfish and there are old archives for posts after June 1st 2003 there as well, but you have to be a member of that list to view them and they are not searchable.

The list was created to allow people of the world to discuss the fishes of Sahul (Sahul is the terrestrial landmass of Australia and New Guinea during low sea levels).
