	Procmail is your friend.  Search the Mailman FAQ Wizard for 
"procmail" and you should find some useful examples.

	That sounds like a CVS problem, and is not something we're likely 
to be able to help you with.  But maybe I'm missing something, so 
feel free to try to elaborate.

	Again, it seems to me like you want to use procmail for this. 
The kind of filtering you seem to be looking for is beyond the 
capabilities of Mailman, at least beyond the capabilities of Mailman 
by itself.
