Dear Mark,

i am so happy about your strong cooperation. it is fantastic.

Here i will show you some of the header. The mailman version is not 
included. And you see, that the administrators of this list don´t 
understand the difference from ...-request and ...-bounces.

Sender: joly.nyc at gmail.com

Errors-to: bestbits-owner at lists.bestbits.net
Sender: bestbits-request at lists.bestbits.net
List-Id: <bestbits.lists.bestbits.net>

In other emails it is listed similar. Therefore, i tried with the Field 
List-Id. In my filter i use now two filter criteria in OR relation. 
Sender or List-Id. Never i found a doubled entry List-Id.

And now it is stable working. After some time, i will try List-Id alone. 
I think, it is better then both. And yes, Errors-to is the same. But i 
like more List-Id.

many, many thanks for your time, work and friendly helping.
with greetings, willi
