You may like to try Gmelius which will give you a wider compose and
reply window, and remove all adds, chat etc.

I tend to use the Gmail UI for mailing lists like this where one can
have loads of replies and the conversation keeps all topics together.
I find Alpine works very well with Emacs as the editor... configured
remotely (i.e. not downloading headers) suits the frequent linux
release schedule. T'Bird and Evolution I found far too slow. Like you
I don't have a lot of time for setting up so this suits me. Mutt and
the Emacs email clients take too long to set up for me.
