Sorry to ask a question not related to python, but to the mail list.
That is i use thundbird to read the list, just find when a post with
many threads is clustered and unfriendly to me. My question is there a
way to read messages sorted by thread ( just like in web version
http://mail.python.org/pipermail/ ) but in thunderbird or other mail
applications, or other way better ?
