Thanks, Giorgos. I think I didn't explain myself clearly in my question.
To rephrase: If I am not subscribed to the mailing list, is there a
way I can reply to a message from the list (and have it attached to the
correct thread)?

Also, supposing I just subscribed to the mailing list today: is there
a way I can reply to a message that appeared on the list last month
I saw in the web based archive)? I.e a message that was sent to the 
list before I subscribed to the list.
