I've got my mail filters set to pour my list mail
directly into folders, so it doesn't linger in my

I don't always get to the list folders (and their
hundreds of messages) on a timely basis, which means
that entire swaths of messages may never be read.

The problem with this is that private replies to me
can sometimes get sucked out of the Inbox without
me ever seeing them -- depending upon what the sender
has deleted or retained in the message body (that would
trigger the "move" function of the filter).

So, I hope I haven't stiffed too many people who sent
me helpful info and never got a reply from that ingrate,
