Perhaps you might want to invest in an MUA that can scan the "List-Id"
line and then sort the message to a distinct folder. Or, perhaps just
highlight/color the item in the INBOX or wherever you have your
messages routinely filed.

However, it appears that you are using GMail so your options are
severely limited. I have heard that they have some sort of rudimentary
sorting/filing options available. Perhaps you might want to investigate
that option if you are welded to their web interface.
