But NNTP servers expire articles too quickly.

(Also, I just mutated metamail to handle x-html, like this:

in mailcap:

text/x-html; /usr/bin/X11/xterm -fn "*lucidatypewriter*medium*-14-*" -e /usr/local/bin/dowwwfile %s

in /usr/local/bin/dowwwfile:

export PATH
cp $1 $1.html
export WWW_HOME

It's a hack, but it's functional...)
