Well I rarely endorse products, but if you are on a Mac or PC, you really
should consider Eudora Pro for your email -- simply the best email product
around. Among its many marvels is a "filter" system which can be programmed
to do all sorts of marvelous things. I use a filter to send any message
which has "unsubscribe" in the subject immediately to the trash. I also use
a filter to send any message from myself to the list to the trash (as I
already have a copy in my Out basket). Then again maybe they belong in the
trash anyway! :)
