Subscribe to a mail list and start replying immediately

Sometimes I browse through archives of a mail list and find some topics very interesting. I subscribe it, but only new messages come to my mail client, and those topics I found interesting initially won't appear anymore. How I wish I can reply to those topics.

If it's also hosted on Google Groups, that's great. Just reply to it there. If you don't want to keep using your Google Account in the discussion. Reply with some nonsense in Google Groups, and then reply with your real identity after that nonsense reaches your mail box.

If the list is available on gmane.org, you may be able to reply from there.

If the above two methods do not apply, you can still force that mail appear in your mailbox. Just create a mbox file and import it into your mail client. If the mail list is not that busy, I would simply download the archive including the topic, gunzip it, and import the archive. Note that some archive changes the mail address to me at here.com. Just run a perl -p -i -e 's/ at /@/g' file is OK.
