I do ths exact same and I am subscribed to 8 mailing lists, but there are
specifc subjects within each list I am interested in and I'm afraid Outlook
search doesn't work that great. For example, I have no idea what "groves"
even are, but I am very intersted in XML-RPC discussions or Namespace
Is it not time we started to get around this problem?
We are in the right place to at least make a start on it !
Over at BizTalk.org, there is some community work on an intelligent
newsreader to summarise threads on the web site as people like to read
offline. I see no reason why the same ideas could not be used for mailing
lists? Dave at Userland has also used a similar (ish) idea for online
discussion groups using RPC and it works very well.
