Well from other comments here it seems I'm not alone but anyway:-

    Proper threading etc. is built in

    It's automatically archived and one can search back through
    threads for old postings, this is by design not an add on.

    Kill files and other similar filtering abilities are part of the
    user interface

    Automatic handling of new messages and a means to say "I've read
    everything here".

    I'm sure there's more....
