Search for solutions in the archives:

You may even use Google:

Don't you have filters (to sort out mailing lists in different folders) 
and threaded view in your email client?  Wouldn't you need to subscribe 
to yet another web-based forum if it wasn't a mailing list?  The last 
thing I would want is to crawl an ill designed web forum with the speed 
of a snail.  I personally prefer NNTP, but mailing-lists are just fine.
