Like many ppl, I don't want to check a lists group over an rss like gmane,
and the reason of checking this list over web-browser then it's because I
don't know how a better way to see the 10 replies on my post and type a new
one using my mail client.

Maybe I'm missing something here (like I said in my early first post), but I
even don't know how to set a total delivery for all messages sent here, I
only receive a digest and there is no option to receive
instant-notification, although I believe mailman has this option but maybe
the case here was disabled by an administrator or I'm doing something wrong
and I can't find the way to do it... please advise?
