    You can use procmail to filter your mail VERY easily. Penalizing
    an entire list of 7000 people or more just because 3 people can't
    use a sane modern mail reader is just senseless.

    This filters linux-kernel into the folder LINUX-KERNEL

    cat >> ~/.procmailrc <<EOF
    * ^X-Mailing-List:.*
    * ^Sender:.*linux-kernel-owner@vger


    That said, and while we're on the topic.. Does anyone have a
    *PERFECT* recipe for procmail to REMOVE the stupid [Dummy] things
    most GNU mailman lists and others prepend to the subject? is one such list and I have given up on
    complaining to list maintainers of other lists to change this,
    and would rather fix it on my end once than complain to others.

    I asked on procmail-list and got some feedback but it didn't give
    me a useable filter..

    Any help appreciated..
