I want to thank those of you who provided useful mbox archives of

Things which it has which make it better than pipermail include:

  - proper handling of mime/attachments/charsets
  - egroups.com style "by month" display
  - findmail.com style framed interface

Things which pipermail has which we still need to add include:
  - date sorted or author sorted display
  - non-frames interface

I'd appreciate it if anyone who currently uses the pipermail interface
