Many people use a free web based mail service like Gmail or Hotmail or
Yahoo for mailing lists.

It can make scanning the subject lines easier and you don't have to
download message content you don't care about.

Separating that mail from your personal mail also means you don't have
to wade through one when you want to look at the other.

If you still prefer the interface of your mail client, you can then
forward that web based mail system to your personal mail account, and
use the filters in your mail client to filter on the 'to' address to
file the mailing list mail separately.
