What can be more basic to the subject of a message than the mailing list from
which it is coming? More often than not the subjects provided by the senders
give no hint that they are about list admin issues.
Let me also comment on George's solution, automatically identifying these
messages based on header info and moving them to another folder. This solution
doesn't work for me because it removes those files from the Inbox ("saves"
them). I read my messages from two locations and often want to keep messages on
the server for download at the other location. But with my mail client (and
probably most other POP clients), saved messages are deleted from the server on
reconnect, preventing later download.

Scott, I was not aware that Quick Mail Pro, or any other email program, didn't
just MOVE email from one mailbox to another. That's what Eudora does. What do
you mean it "saves" them? If I download from Eudora, I can tell the program
NOT to delete the emails at the server after I have downloaded them. In fact,
once in a while, when I check email in Netscape, I have it set up to NOT delete
the email from the server. Then when I use Eudora, it is set to delete after
downloading. I don't think it's a matter of "saving" and having them
deleted. What we are talking about is that, once the email is downloaded and
ends up in your IN box, the email program should have the capability to
"filter" on anything, particularly on headers, and just move the already
downloaded emails to another Mailbox. That has nothing to do with what happens
on the server.
I think you need to check out the configuration options of your email program
and see what the options are.
