Google Groups (kinda) solves this problem. On the viewing side, the app is pretty decent, and then you can still receive / reply through email if desired.

A good example group - https://groups.google.com/forum/#!forum/tiddlywikidev

I wish Apache projects would move more towards something like this.

Google groups is freaking awful!

It actually was decent in the beginning but with each change google broke more features and made the UI far less usable. Not to mention, you force anyone you want in your group to create a google account.
