I agree with Stan.  There are Email applications that will automatically
"filter" mail (Eudora is one).  For example I use this feature to but all
of the SEAOC mail into a separate folder so it doesn't interfere with my
business mail.  I then automatically separate the SEAOC mail into separate
"mail boxes" depending on the topic such as Steel concrete etc.  This is
based on the subject header.  The subject header can be several words but
as long as one of the words is "concrete" Eudora will automatically put
into the correct mail box.  I have to add new "filters as new topics occur
but it generally works very well.  In the ideal world everyone would use
the same key words in the subject header (hint hint).  If there were a
topic I had no interest in then I could have Eudora automatically  transfer
this mail to the trash.  This approach seems to be more efficient then
having several lists servers.
