Ditto the above, I use Tbird, gMail and receive individual posts. I
prefer to keep them locally and delete periodically, because the time I
may have to read rev lists is often a time when I have no connection (at
the dentist e.g.) But, they will always be there in gMail.
Individual posts or digests take up the same space in tBird, but if you
set a folder in Tbird, create a rule to send all list message to that
folder and then turn on threading, it's actually much, much better than
digests. Threads that have no value in your universe you can delete in
one go... not possible in digests.
