A couple of years ago I have downloaded the TEI-L archive to import it 
in the nabble and markmail services. You can only get it in chunks of 
one month, by sending the GET command to [log in to unmask], 
with following arguments:
     -TEI-L (the list name)
     -LOGYYMM, with YY and MM being two digits for the required year and 
month respectively.

For example, in order to get a copy of the TEI-L archives for 1999, send 
an email to [log in to unmask] containing following commands:

	GET TEI-L         LOG9901
	GET TEI-L         LOG9902
	GET TEI-L         LOG9903
	GET TEI-L         LOG9904
	GET TEI-L         LOG9905
	GET TEI-L         LOG9906
	GET TEI-L         LOG9907
	GET TEI-L         LOG9908
	GET TEI-L         LOG9909
	GET TEI-L         LOG9910
	GET TEI-L         LOG9911
	GET TEI-L         LOG9912

Listserv will send you a separate email per command (containing a copy 
of the messages sent to TEI-L that month).

Hope this helps,
