Interesting, in my emails from Gnucash I do not see any headers with tags
On most of them I see a tag
But that is not a field I can filter on from my ISP
In this message from Dave I see my email as the to: and
Gnucash Users <firstname.lastname@example.org as the CC: but there is no List-id
The only lists I see in my inbox today with a mailing-list tag are from
So the filters Dave suggests would be incomplete, a CC is also needed.
Maybe also a 'From' just to be sure?
The emails from the list seem to have a variety of header forms, perhaps
depending on the mailers used for the reply, or the reply-to or
reply-list or reply-all forms. Seems hard to keep track of all the
Instead of requiring 2-3 or more filters for each list, the subject code
allows a single filter to do the job, consistently, never misses.

The mail already *is* from the list.
This can get flubbed when people start using reply-all and
leaving the original senders in the mix. As this continues in
the thread, individual e-mail addresses start bouncing around
between To and CC and the list address usually gets relegated to
CC permanently. But it doesn’t matter because one can always set
their filters to include To, CC and From (if not also, or
instead, reply-to) and there should be no issue.
There is a case for reply-all, but it involves cross-posted
messages (to other lists) or one-off participants who aren’t
list members. This is pretty rare here. (Occasionally you’ll see
a message posted on both -dev and -user but not often and so
many are on both) I don’t think I’ve seen any cross-postings to
outside lists. On the off chance a non-member participates (with
moderator approval) it would likely be obvious and you could
include their personal address.

Question for those who want the [GNC] prefix:
Would having the email from be from the list
instead of the user (original sender) serve as well?
This would also help with the "remember to reply to the
list" issue. Reply,
Reply-all, Reply-list would include the list address.
I believe the mailing list software would still put the
address in the headers so that an off-list reply would be
Some view this type of address munging as being bad but I

Your tally probably doesn't mean what you think it

experience, far more people are likely to complain
about 'changes' they
don't like than are people who approve or are
neutral about the same
'changes'. Like on a ratio of 10 to 1 or greater.
Please add my vote to the neutral category. I
subscribe to about a dozen
mail lists, most use a list-related prefix in brackets;
a couple don't.
Because incoming messages are sorted into list-specific
files the only time
the prepended tags matter is when multiple lists cover
the same topic.
GnuCash is the only bookkeeping application I use so
a prepended tag
no difference to me. But, for those who don't
automatically sort incoming
messages it could well be helpful.
If having it present does no harm there's no reason
to remove it, in my
opinion. If you're reading e-mail on a phone, watch, or
other small device
and cannot see the entire subject line you probably have
the ability to
scroll horizontally as well as vertically.
