Or vserver 3 Euro/month ($4)
1,5 GB hdd; 50GB traffic/month

not mutt? Mutt supported mail threading and this feature is
very usefull for mailinglists :)

I use Mindterm, a SSH2 Java midlet, to access my vserver from webterminals of
my university and use mutt un my vserver :)
Also cool, midlets from jcraft

Ok, Willie don't like Javascript and maybe java either
- so use SSH2 clients to access your server ;)

BTW vserver:
AFAIK is a vserver cheaper than a xen server,
but it has some restrictions:
- can't run your own kernel
- can't use ntpdate
- can't use networktools that are accessing the device directly:
  ethereal, iptables, ping, traceroute

And of course I'm strictly __against__ changing replacing mailinglist,
for several reasons: ***this is out of any discussion***.
But it probably worth to write a tutorial about ml for ml newbies.
