And just what do you think the To: line is, chopped liver?

I have Communicator filter RC5 messages 2 ways.  1) Grep for [RC5] in
the Subject: header, and 2) To: rc5 at llamas.net.  Hell, you could even
filter by checking for the existance of "unsubscribe rc5" in the body of
the message (appended to every message sent to the list).

To unsubcribe, send 'unsubscribe rc5' to majordomo at llamas.net
rc5-digest subscribers replace rc5 with rc5-digest
