I'm all for the newsserver option 3.
I have only one place where I still have mail delivery enabled and
that is at my day work where the IT department has blocked the NNTP
port entirely in the corporate firewall. *Everything* except port 80
is blocked....
But I can live with waiting until I get home at night to read the
stuff and do some posting. And if you supply a web based NNTP
read-only interface I could even *read* the messages during the day...

But in all my other PC:s I only use the newsserver (and I have done
for 5 years or so). Best way to handle the messages in my view.

If option 3 is not going to happen then option 2 gets my vote. If
people cannot bother to subscribe then they have no reason to use the
list anyway.
