check it out on a terminal that can manage colour if you're not currently.
Eterm does a very good job, xterm not quite as good. And have a look at
I also like the
option, but I generally run a tall Eterm.

I use the threaded sort option, with coloring for certain regex's, and I
delete it all.
I used to keep it, but then I realised what ajh said, there are web
archives. So I delete all mail from any list with web archives, unless
there's a particular nugget that I want to keep without searching for it.
