I use Gmail to receive and write to Statalist.  It searches through
messsages very quickly.  You can tag and starred your emails - doesn't
sound too exciting although I think you would grow to love these
functions once you start to use them.  Plus it threads most emails at
most times (not that it would catch all replies to the email, but it
catches most, which is sufficient at most times).

To sign up for a Gmail account you need an invitation from your
friends.  If your friends aren't into Gmail you (and anyone on
Statalist) can email me offlist and I'll send you an invite.

I haven't used Outlook myself, but in an earlier posting in this
thread, David Harrison said:

WRT Kontact, I assume what you mean is that you use KMail (Kontact's
mail component).  I know that KMail has a nice threading
implementation, using the In-Reply-To and References headers when
available, and when not, defaulting to the subject headers.
