I don't. Mail runs on my mac and fetches the mail to me.

Arrow key, enter key, delete key. No scroll.

The Mail program toggles threads with a click.

Forums to my view are great for following a specific discussion  
interest. All the messages are stored on the host. This cuts down your  
own hard drive storage problem and the length of messages becomes  
somebody else's problem.

I personally prefer to have my messages on my computer. I am not  
always internet connected.

A forum with an RSS feed would be preferable.
