No it can't. An email client renders text (possibly with HTML styling
applied, but most mailing list traffic is just text). The issue of it
being native or not pertains to everything *except for* the text. All of
the chrome, all of the controls for manipulating the client, navigating
between messages, writing replies, etc. All of that stuff is native in
an email client, and non-native in forums software like Discourse.
