I'm not sure what the original poster had in mind, but to me the nicest
feature of both Thunderbird and Mutt with regard to mailing lists is the
ability to sort by thread. That lets you easily go back and forth through a
conversation without having to resort to extensive quoting to keep track of
what everyone is talking about.

Combine that with a filter that puts all your mailing list traffic in a
separate folder, and you've got a setup that's easy to read and keeps out
the non-list traffic (and spam).

In Thunderbird to view messages by thread choose View -> Sort By ->
