Get yourself a gmail account and subscribe this list to it.  The
threaded presentation goes a long way, and a few additional minutes
with the label setup tool can practically create your own personal
forum layout, and if there are only a few things to catch up on you
can quickly scan them under "All Mail" rather than having to check
each of the different categories separately.

I read nearly all my email lists in gmail now ... but, increasingly,
email user agents like Thunderbird have similar features if you don't
like a web interface (which given your attraction to forums is
probably not an issue).
