[MlMt] Utterly baffled by Mailing Lists

As simple way to handle mailing lists in MM is to set up a separate 
smart mailbox for each list. In my experience, this takes a bit of 
effort initially but makes it easy to handle peculiarities of various 
lists, and there is no problem to view each list individually as well as 
all together. I have lists that have no list-id, for example, but use 
common prefix for subject. Some send emails from the list address, some 
use posters email as sender. All those smart mailboxes sit inside a 
smart mailbox “mailing lists” that has no other settings than the 
checkbox “include messages in any of the submailboxes” checked. I 
also have a smart mailbox “mailing lists new” that shows me only new 
messages from the “mailing lists”, new as incoming within last 24 
hrs and not read yet.
