Yes, I am using Outlook 2003 and it has these capabilities for sure.
In fact I have set it up to stuff away the messages, but there are
just too many of them anyway.
And there is no real overview available like what one gets with a
newsreader like Agent. Threaded by topic and indented by sequence,
try doing tha with Outlook...

I have used this mail client (or its predecessors) since about 1997 or
so and I have a lot of messages saved that are work related.

But I do not want to expand it into being a repository for the mail
lists too when we have news mirrors like GMANE available.

Finally, the problems are coming from a misconfiguration on the GMANE
server itself as was discovered by Vincent Snijders, so I hope that
the GMANE maintainer will fix the problem after he has read my report
to him.
