I'm not experiencing this problem.  How do you have your inbox set up?  
Do all of your inbound emails go there?  Have you though about setting 
up message rules and filtering out the emails from this mailing list and 
put them in a separate folder?  That's how I have it set up.  Also when 
was the last time you compacted your mail folders?
