I feel a bit old school now :)

I have everything in Thunderbird offline/online with nice search
functionalities (and another email client to avoid clutter). I can do
everything from Thunderbird and I do not need to be online or to find a
corresponding mailman archive for replies (+ the fact that I can have
many news channels).

So nobody is using an nntp ? From what I understood, the nntp-mailman
bridge of GMANE is going to stay, is that right? Is there any other
nntp-mailman bridge out there that can be used for boost?
