I already use my browser to read my email. I use Gmail to handle the mail
from my domain. I can read it at home, at the coffee house or at my day
The argument that you have to start your browser seems thin to me. What is
a mail reader if not an application as complex as a browser?
A forum allows the _writer_ to sort the posting. I have yet to find an
email filtering program that does works in a more than rudimentary fashion.
A forum can be searched for keywords in much the same way that an email list
can be searched.
Posts stay on a forum. Much of the email on this list goes into the bit
bucket for me. Advertising? Marketing? We don't have a working phone yet.
