Hey list,

I'm a very social person, and I love lurking and taking part on discussions
for the different communities I'm part of, and those aren't just a few (and
that includes orgmode, of course!).

Right now, I basically use a specific gmail account only for mailing lists.
The downside is that it gets poluted pretty quickly. Also, if I want to
access it offline/locally via IMAP it quickly eats disk space, since this
specific email account receives hundreds of new emails per day.

I still didn't find a good way to manage my mailing lists,
I'm definitely not satisfied with my current setup.

How do you manage your mailing list/newsgroups: what tool(s) do you use and
what's your workflow? It'd be nice if one could centralize reading in one
place, perhaps by using emacs as a client, but without eating a lot of disk
space.

Cheers,

- Marcelo.

Many FLOSS mailing lists are also "newsgroups on gmane" -- so
you can simply launch your favorite nntp reader and read/post.

I use Gnus for nntp, I cannot to Gmane et voilà!

I also use Gnus + http://gwene.org for reading RSS feeds... 
which is just *great*.

HTH,

Hi Bastien,

I wil play with Gnus with the setup you mention, seems like a good option.

Thanks!

- Marcelo.
