Hi Dragon. Other mail list solutions have the ability to post and reply to messages online. The prime example may be the Topica discussion lists. They do not offer web mail, but they do offer online participation.

I think this would be a great feature to add, so folks could check and post online, without using their ISP's web mail. I run several Topica lists, and we have many list members that choose "No Mail" and regularly go to the archives to view others' posts, respond, or post. For whatever reason, they prefer to not receive emails from the list.
