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
python.org 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.
