[Mailman-Users] Is it possible to filter what is archived?

If you assume Mailman is configured for an organisation as a 
hierarchical structure of umbrealla lists.. e.g.:

ALL@ -> Dept1@, Dept2@, Dept3@
Dept1@ -> Dept1admin@, dept1engineers@
Dept2@ -> Dept2admin@, dept2engineers@
Dept3@ -> Dept3admin@, dept3engineers@

When archiving, it can get a bit messy when e-mails to ALL@ get archived 
in all of the sub lists the messages pass through.

What I would like to do is filter what gets archived so that if a 
message originates in mailman (ie from an umbrella list) it doesn't get 

Any thoughts?

I appreciate this may not be possible.
Kind Regards,
