Re: Handling email

If I may chime in, I'd like to say that I've found Google's Gmail
service (http://gmail.google.com) extremely helpful in this regard.
Whereas I had to filter messages from mailing lists into separate
folders and later weed out the discussions I was interested in, Gmail
automatically organizes messages into discussion threads, where each
thread takes up a single line in my inbox, rather than each message.

Now, I can more easily ignore the discussions tyhat I'm not interested
in, but still archive them for later reference.

Sorry to sound like a sales pitch, but it's helped me a great deal and
I thought folks like Barbara might be interested. I do have some
Gmail invitations if anyone is interested in trying the service (it's
free).

Also, I'll take this opportunity to say I too support the idea of the
announcement list.
