I have procmail rules which filter particular e-mails to particular 
folders which I check once per day, but for the mailing list in normal 
operation I prefer to receive a (sort-of-daily) MIME digest in my main 

I have two rules which divert mailing list posts to two folders when I am 
on holiday (so I can check the main inbox remotely with less messages): 
one of them is actually linked to /dev/null and is for what I call 
"secondary" lists, the other one collects the posts of the "primary" lists 
to be read when I return.

It is also possible (at least in mailman lists) to set one's own 
subscription to "nomail", but if one has many lists, it's too boring to do 
it (and reset it later) for each list, easier to filter collectively.
