It is mirrored in several places such as the main Python web site, the 
ActiveState archive and the GMane news server.So although it's not on 
Usenet per se it can be read via a newsreader. It's how I receive it :-)

I'm not sure how well the Python/Activestate archives support 
attachments but GMane seems to work just fine...

A bigger problem for mobile users is that attachments use bandwidth 
which is often paid for by the byte so lots of attachments become 
expensive... Although most mobile mail tools should defer fetching 
attachments until specifically asked to!
