I have to agree with Tony. However filtering based on To:  and Cc:
for mailing lists is not entirely accurate.

Since you use Thunderbird, you can use filtering to detect the
standard mailman mail headers. I usually have the filter act on this one:

List-Id: The Canadian Ubuntu Users Community <>

To do that

1. Go to Tools > Message Filters > New

2. From there you will see a list of field to use for filtering
(Subject, To, etc.). The last one is "Customize". Click on it.

3. In "New message header:" input List-Id then click "Add".

4. Create a new filtering rule using the new custom field.
