It has "labels" and "filters". On a mailing list message you will see
a "filter messages like this" option. If you don't want your inbox
cluttered up do "skip inbox" and "apply label mythtvusers". The label
works like a folder, except you can apply more than one. For example I
have a mythtvusers label and a mythtvusers-me label. I use the latter
to filter messages that are to this list AND from me. When a message
has a label applied, the whole thread (or 'conversation' in
gmail-speak) is attached. Therefore my mythtvsers-me folder has all
the threads I have contributed to, making it easier to track threads I
have an interest in.
