Using the newsreader interface, I get 1 email message per list to verify 
the email address. After that, it is as if I were subscribed. (Some 
mirrored email lists require a subscription at their site, but most lists seems not to.) And, of course, Thunderbird fills in 
data for both new messages and replies. I do not know why it would be 
different through the web interface.

The monthly archives, which include the current month,
can be accessed by thread, subject, author, or date.
