I don't understand, what problem are you experiencing?

Newsgroups are in my experience the best if you use
Gnus. For example gnu.emacs.help - this list/group.

For lists that aren't groups as well, as you already
seem to know (?) you can use mail splitting to make
those mails appear to be newsgroups - not just appear,
in all essence, it is the same (they respond the same
way to commands in the Group buffer, for example).

Splitting may look like this:

(setq nnmail-split-methods
 '(("zsh"          
"^\\(Cc\\|\\(Resent-\\)?To\\):.*zsh-\\(announce\\|workers\\|users\\)@zsh\.org.*")
   ("debian.user"  "^\\(Cc\\|\\(Resent-\\)?To\\):address@hidden")
   ("l4"           "^\\(Cc\\|\\(Resent-\\)?To\\):address@hidden")
   ("emacs-w3m"    "^Subject: \\[emacs-w3m.*")
   ; ...
   ("mail.misc"    "") ))

How to reply? Use
`gnus-article-followup-with-original'. It is bound to F
but you can rebind it to r (or whatever) if you are not
happy with having to use a two-key stroke for something
that frequent.

Check the headers in the message-mode buffer if you are
in doubt.

The only practical difference I have experienced
between mailgroups and newsgroups (except the small
overhead of setting up split-methods) is faces (fonts).
Those are named differently: instead of
`gnus-group-news-1' (etc.), `gnus-group-mail-1'.
