I vaguely recall that one of the example smart folders that exists 
unless and until you delete it is "All Mailing Lists" but if you do not 
have that it is easy enough to recreate it. Just use a condition of the 
"List-Id" header existing.

Note that this catches all mail coming through standards-compliant 
mailing lists, such as THIS mailing list. I'm pretty sure both you and I 
and everyone else posting here are all people, and if you do not want to 
include discussion lists like this one where people write messages, 
you'll have a much more complicated problem. The first step in that 
would be defining what exactly you mean by "NOT from people."
