If you look at the headers, each list puts out very different headers and
it's very easy to filter.  For example, the 200 list has:
List-Id: 200q20v list <200q20v.audifans.com>

The quattro list has:
List-Id: The main audifans.com quattro list <quattro.audifans.com>

If you use Outlook, Eudora, Netscape, or many other programs, you can set
up filters so that each list goes into a different mailbox.

The advantage to using List-Id is that, say, I reply to Kneale and cc the
main list.  If you filter based on the subject line, or to/cc fields...you
might end up with both copies(from the list server) in the "list mailbox."

Only mail from the list server will have the List-Id header, making it
ideal for filtering.
