SquirrelMail was never intended to be a full-fledged MUA. I know, I  
use it a lot, but I would never use it for reading mailing lists for  
precisely the reason you are talking about.

There are some plugins available for SquirrelMail that enhance the  
ability to handle messages, but you'll never get all the  
functionality of a real mail program, it just was never intended to  
do that.
