Just use Thunderbird and setup a Newsgroup for nntp.gmane.org. You can
then send and "receive" message for all the Mageia groups via Gmane
without having to subscribe. It also does not break any of the threading.

Problem solved! And it is, in general, a much nicer way to consume
mailing lists IMO.

Also if you use my Thunderbird newsgroup rename extension, you'll get
nice names:
