I used to use gmane with thunderbird long ago.. No I just use gmail for
reading, sending, and searching. Which means I have a decade's worth of
Boost related emails archived in my email account :-) But if I have to post
a reference to an old email I find it first in my gmail then search for the
same one in the mailman archives.
