Well, it depends on what client you are using. Thunderbird, for example
can sort email by thread and indicate what you have and haven't read --
and it will handle NNTP as well. So for at least one client, there is
no functional difference between email and NNTP. Given the increasing
lack of support for NNTP, I'm not sure it makes sense to move to it.
For the moment, I'm using Windows Live Mail, which has an NNTP
newsreader and regular non-threaded email. I've tried Thunderbird (a
couple years ago) but it didn't do what I needed. It may be different
now Other than this group, I have no reason to "sort email by threads"
since I don't carry on multiple conversations with friends and family.
Having said that, I'm also thinking of trying out Seamonkey.
Microsoft created an app that allows forums to be read as NNTP; however,
it will only work with Microsoft's forums as far as I know. Jochen
Kalmbach created a Community Forums NNTP Bridge that works quite well
translating forums to NNTP. Some of the denizens here may know him; the
guy's a genius, and if he could be recruited for this project . . .
Not that anyone here would be interested in the "Bridge", but if someone
wishes to contact him about maybe working with y'all, well, here's his
