No, I don't set up anything special in Thunderbird.  I just signed up to using my normal email address.  The lists send me emails.  I have a rule that filters anything from to a Lists folder.  Easy peasy.

I get every email separately, but I'm okay with that.  And David has worked diligently over the years to make sure that all I have to do is Reply to the message, and all else happens magically.

I've tried setting up a new newsgroup account on Thunderbird without success.  Under server settings I have a server name of on port 119 and Security Settings of none.

But when I go to Manage newsgroup subscriptions, the connection times out.

Maybe I'm mis-understanding what you're doing...  Any insight appreciated.
