Something like Instapaper, but for email threads?

Is there an equivalent of Instapaper or Pocket, but more or less optimized for saving and decluttering (long) email threads? (Gmail, specifically?)

One of my frustrations with both Instapaper/Pocket is there's nothing that lets you say, "Y'know, this is a really interesting list-serv thread, but I'd like to save this for later in a more cleaned-up format."
I can always archive and tag it with something in gmail, but a. reading through my email program on my phone/computer psychologically feels like work (as 95% of my email usage is expressly for work), b. it's filled with distractions/filler (e.g. email footers, quotes of past emails in the conversation over and over again, etc.) in the exact way Instapaper/Pocket is designed to filter out, and c. it's just a pain to read.
Is there any kind of app (Mac/Iphone if possible) that will allow you, in one way or another, to make long email threads a relative joy to read? Maybe I just need to get an email app that I just use to read these kind of threads, that's particularly good with list-servs? What do other folks with voluminous list-serv subscriptions do?
