Similar to what?  Nothing Evolution done is particularly unique; and it

23737 newsgroups. I'm subscribed to 5 (FIVE) of them. Did Evolution
store the whole server ?

Depends on what options are selected.

What is your opinion on that ?

If you want to index or SPAM score, etc... you need the entire message,
