I don't have cc's removed because that still sometimes gets me faster replies, but I do have get only one message when a message is posted to several lists set. I use mutt to read mail and maildrop to do filtering. I think for me smarter filtering would be to split the lists into to or three groups. There are lists I see a fair number of interesting messages on, lists I can often answer questions on, and other postgres lists. When I fall behind, doing a D.* on the other postgres lists is something I should do more than I currently am. ---------------------------(end of broadcast)--------------------------- TIP 2: Don't 'kill -9' the postmaster
