Since Nabble generates very annoying behaviors when used to send
messages[1] let me suggest using Gmane instead.



Gmane seems to be one of the better web based mailing list and
newgroup readers out there.


[1] For example Nabble apparently allows senders to edit their draft
and send a message multiple times with the same message-id!  So we get
several messages sometimes different or sometimes the same but with
the same message-id on all several messages.  Yuck!  It should at
least create a unique message-id for every message.
