So, the only dependable method i've seen is to use mmdf (not my choice
8-), and use its 'addr' selector in .maildelivery, which is "the
address that was used to mail to you."
Then i'd subscribe to lists via cgd+listname, or whatever, and use
'addr cgd+listname' to pick where it should be filed.
i've never used procmail, and as far as i know MH's maildelivery
mechanism doesn't have this ability, since the address used to get to
the user isn't available to MH, as far as i know.
