I use Gmail IMAP and have a filter that reads the from address and applies a particular label to the message, and when it comes down to, it gets routed to a folder other than my Inbox. Roger was talking about how some people commented to him about this behavior and I found it amusing that it happened to me with the very message that described the behavior.

This is my Gmail filter for this list:

Matches: listid:macports-users
Do this: Skip Inbox, Apply label "MacPorts Users"

E-mails to the list, therefore, go straight to my "MacPorts Users" IMAP 
folder. Personal replies go to my inbox.

My MUA is Thunderbird - it has a handy "Reply List" option which does as 
it says, as well as a Reply option which follows the list admin's setting.
