What exactly are you trying to filter? If it's just this group, both To 
and From-headers of all sent messages are the same.
(from=you, to=list)

I know posts to this list are easy to filter (both sent and received), as 
I've done it myself. But that's all I can say; I'm using 
nowadays, and I don't remember exactly what the mailheaders look like.
