Mark, I tried it and it works great!

I think the FAQ title needs to mention "filter" or "regex" because the
existing title ("How do I implement a custom handler in Mailman?")
didn't ring that bell for me (my bad, but I have to live with it).

I tried to do some editing in the FAQs but, even after I established
an account and I logged in, I couldn't find the way to do it, so I'll
keep hunting around.

Best regards,
