If you're on a Unix box, I've got a suggestion that beats procmail+elm.
It's called mutt, and it's similar to elm, but deals with lots of traffic 
like nothing else I've seen.

It supports 'limiting' the display better than elm since you can limit 
on both to: and cc: at the same time. It also supports macros (#q shows me
all quattro mail, and @q shows me all unread quattro mail).

This is what a portion of the main screen looks like, showing both 
the mailing list and the sender:

If you want more info, see http://www.cs.hmc.edu/~me/mutt/index.html
or drop me note. If you pick up mutt, drop me a note anyway, since the
display you see here isn't standard (it's just a configuration item).
