unfortunately not.  two things:

1. we COULD search the body for X-No-Archive, so if someone quoted your
   email, your wishes would be respected.

   it wouldn't be perfect.  what if they trimmed that line?  it would
   depend on a quoting system using ">".  you couldn't post an email
   with a lines like /^X-No-Archive.*/.

2. but you may also ask "so what?".  it's a public forum.  you
   shouldn't expect posts not to be archived.

if you have an idea how to implement a threadful X-No-Archive, and it's
either easy to implement or you want to implement it yourself, then i'm
all for it.

just realize that X-No-Archive is like copy protection.  the responder
can bypass any system we institute.
