Dear Mark,

According to my scenario please see following points

test at example.com: mikel at example.com, jolly at example.com, clark at example.com
(these are the member of the list)

Here test at example.com is mailing list

1. If xyz at example.com sent mail to test at example.com then only 
mikel at example.com & tina at example.com will get the mails

2. But if arun at example.com sent mail to test at example.com then all the
member (mikel at example.com, tina at example.com, clark at example.com) will get
the mails.

I do not make 2 lists according to your suggestion, and also i do not want 
configure with regexp matches on the Subject: or Keywords, means i am 
concentrating on the poster based.

Please elaborate about this scenario.

Thanks & Regards,

Arun Kumar Gupta
