It is very easy to set up a filter in your mail system to direct all mails
from a particular source/list to a dedicated file. Set your system to thread
your mails, open once a week and hey presto: a sorted, threaded, weekly
summary! You can even kill file topics or posters you have no interest in or
dislike! I have been on various diverse mailing lists it works like a dream!
