I second the Gmail recommendation!  Auto-threading has made handling busy
lists so much easier that I am now in the process of moving all my mail
lists over to a gmail account.  THIS is the way webmail should be!
PS If anyone wants a free gmail account I think I still have most of my
original 100 invites left

Happy Holidays!
