Then, as you can see from my more detailed reply, you either have to
(a) browse the archives on the web site or (b) subscribe to the list
in a slightly different manner.

These *were* attachments. Notice the nonce strings (237e8abe, etc),
which were generated on the fly, to point to the attachments. If you
go to the corresponding web page, you'll find the actual attachment
but with its correct URL (else you wouldn't see it!) which uses a
differently generated nonce string, with a different format, eg:

But there's no way to get from one nonce string to the other as
they're pseudo-random.

These are not attachments, they're just URLs which people have put in
their posts, and so they're (generally) correct.

I hope this helps.

The fix(es):

----- (a)

The example given by Karlin used method (a) where you browse starting at

which gives you a time-reversed list of this month's posts. As you're
running linux, you might like to script this using someting like
  "$(date +%Y-%m)/threads.html"
which will always give you the current month.

----- (b)

But if you don't mind the increased size of messages, you could use (b).
If you go to the badly designed web page where you probably originally

and scroll right to the bottom, under the section with the heading
  "lilypond-user Subscribers
   (The subscribers list is only available to the list administrator.)"

you can fill in your email address and get to your options
page. Alternatively, you should be able to get there
directly with

where localpart@yourdomain is your email address. (You need your
lilypond-user password.)

Then go to the section
  "Get MIME or Plain Text Digests?"
  "Your mail reader may or may not support MIME digests. In general
   MIME digests are preferred, but if you have a problem reading them,
   select plain text digests."

and click on MIME.

Then click "Submit your changes" at the bottom.
