( (Sender contains "gnupg-users") |
  (To contains "gnupg-users")     |
  (CC contains "gnupg-users")     )

Seems to do that just fine under Netscape & Mozilla Mail. For grins I
checked LookOut! 2000... It's "Rules _Wizard_" seems rather limited. It
can handle the Sender: and To: cases, but is brain dead for CC: and
checking specific headers. Maybe some other Outlook users know how to
extend the ruleset types.

The "[<list-name>]" construct in the Subject header is used for a lot of
 my own rules, but I really wish there was a "better" way -- the [...]
consumes a fair amount of space at the beginning of the subject line and
only serves to lower the s/n ratio.
