[MlMt] Utterly baffled by Mailing Lists

What I use to filter out (marketing)mailing lists from my inbox is the 

I defined a Marketing mailbox where I drop a (the first?) mail from that 

I defined a condition based rule on my inbox:
- if source is in Marketing mailbox
- then move to Marketing mailbox ( or Auto_Marketing mailbox° )

By setting up submailboxes (on the sender) you can then easily see what 
is related to which list/sender.

Or on the marketing mailbox you can setup a definition based rule to 
move the mails to other mailboxes
