Get a better mail client. or double check. The good mail clients let 
you specify custom headers to filter on, so just create a custom one 
for list-id.

If your mail client really is braindead (how do you filter on 
yahoogroups then?) then Sender is an acceptable backup, and there's no 
excuse for a client to not filter on that, IMHO. sender should be 
stable most of the time, but might change during upgrades. List-ID is 
defined to be static across the life of a list just for this reason.
