I tried reading mailing lists in gnus in emacs, but emacs stops responding with the slow nntp servers downloads. nabble, gmane etc are also kind of slow. So I thought about download the gzipped archives available from most mailing lists. here are some nice instructions to import these archives into thunderbird. Is there a similar streamlined way to read the unziped archives in emacs, or other software ?

Did you try gnus-group-make-doc-group (G f in the *Groups* buffer)?

If the files in the archive are in the mbox or similar format it might work.

Another thing to try is to use gnus-group-browse-foreign-server (B) and pick the correct method and file.
