As an example: I have a single interface for messages that don't need instant response.  It's Microsoft Outlook (for my sins!)  Outlook handles newsgroups poorly - they're managed as Exchange public folders, and even that functionality is going away.

Adding another place to look for messages doubles the complexity of managing my messages.  I cannot easily change my mail client (long story, but a common one in businesses).  Therefore the email interface is more functional *for me* than the newsgroup interface.  I accept that where there is an unconstrained choice of message reader, the balance is likely to be different.
