What about server side resource for a mailing list that would present a
nice view of it and would allow some goodies. I can think of some ideas
1) Sorting by subject/author/date/date-range/etc
2) Filtering by body/subject/author. This would allow only to see Anselm's
replys for example.
3) checking the articles that arrived after you checked the archive last
time (using cookies on client browser)

Does anybody else have a good idea of what they want? It could be a great
example of Jigsaw use. One could probably even use that as in interface to
personal mailing lists at home.... :-}

I would be interested to implement that (time allowing) if a good
specification could be developed. (not my strongest point)

Regards,
  Alex.
