I think you suggestion for giving the URL of the archives as,  "cran-MIRROR/search.html" (emphasis added) is not optimal, because the URL as does not work. The URL given should work as given. Thus, or
are more helpful.

But then, everybody loads stuff from CRAN master and does not use an appropriate mirror.
I'd like to suggest *not* to use any mirror URL explicitly in R-help mails (always, not only related to this thread). In this case, I'd propose to write something like "CRAN-mirror/search.html"
