I use Netscape Communicator for reading mail, and it is really easy to set
this up:

* Set up a message filter that copies all messages that have
  a "To:" or "Cc:" address containing STRUTS-DEV to a special
  folder for this mailing list.  (I am on ~25 mailing lists -- this lets
  me focus on one list at a time).

* View --> Sort --> By Thread to sort messages as threaded
  conversations.

By default I leave all my mailing lists sorted this way, but Netscape lets
you change the sort order on the fly as well -- so you can say "sort by
sender" and see all the messages from a particular person, no matter which
threaded conversation they were participating in.  But I normally go back to
threaded mode after that.
