[Mailman-Users] List ID

It appears that Outlook does not have the capability to sort by List ID
unless I am missing something.

I can only add what is in the header and I believe that I would have to
add the whole thing:
"List-Id: A Discussion of Alternatives to Traditional Prostate Cancer
Treatments <alternatives.phcagroups.org>"

Anyone have any thoughts.  When you realize that I have some 3800
members in my various lists and some 85% of them use Outlook or Outlook
Express - it would be nice if I could sort by the List ID.

      Order your "Prostate-Help CD-ROM" at
      Prostate-Help Web Site, Aubrey's latest book on PCa,
      Dr. Myers Prostate Forums, and more all included.
      Don Cooley, call 408 268-6400 if I can help!

This is your short description for the list: A Discussion of
Alternatives to Traditional Prostate Cancer Treatments

This is the ID of your list: alternatives.phcagroups.org

what I usually do is set up a filter something similar to (your exact
setup will vary, this isn't outlook syntax)

Header "list-id" contains "alternatives.phcagroups.org".

If I'm on multiple mail lists, I'll do a single filter for the site:

Header "list-id" contains "phcagroups.org".

In theory, you could filter all lists to a folder with something like:

Header "list-id" exists


Header "list-id" not empty

if you only use a single "lists" folder.

the ability to use fewer rules is something you really can't do with
Sender or filtering on to/cc.

Someday, we'll look back on this, laugh
nervously and change the subject.
