Checking the full headers of this e-mail, I can see you're using evolution:

X-Mailer: Evolution 2.26.1

One relevant bit about the e-mails that get to this list is the fact
that they have more headers defined, such as:

X-BeenThere: ubuntu-users at

So go to Evolution >> Edit >> Message filters >> click Add (for "Incoming"):

- name the rule ("ubuntu-users" for instance)
- click the "sender" drop-down list, scroll and select "specific header"
- enter "X-BeenThere" in the field near that "specific header" drop-down
- enter "ubuntu-users at" in the field near that
"contains" drop-down
- in the "then" section, select "move to folder" from that drop-down list
- click the button "click here (...)" and select your "ubuntu" folder

and you're done. : )
