I find the most reliable way to filter mailing lists is on the List-id header.
It would be nice if this was an optional template that could be pre-filled from

You can achieve this by creating a custom template
1) Open quickFilters Settings (right-click the quickFilters Assistant button)
2) click advanced
3) activate Custom Templates
4) click Create New...
5) Enter the name for the tmeplate (e.g. List-Id)
6) select List-IF on the condition and select List Id from the Custom Variables
(top right of the dialog) to fill in as value
Next time you create a filter a new template "List-Id" will be shown
I am reopening this bug now, maybe we can add this improvement for our standard
users. At tghe moment, the template "Mailing List" obviously describes
"Similar to Based on Sender, but it doesn't fill the 'to' condition field"
One possible modification would be to add the List-Id behavior in case a
non-empty list-id header can be found. In case no list-id field is found we
could still fall back to he old behavior. For collecting multiple emails in a
filter list the template "Group" can be used.
Apart from changing the behavior, the most work will be to explain this in the
description field. I think an additional (localised) explanation will be in

Prerelease version with template "Mailing List" using (and pre-filling from
email) new header condition of "list-id" - if list-id doesn't exist in the
email you're creating the filter from, it will use the sender address instead
"Useful for mailing lists with 'List-Id' field. If this is not set it will use
the sender's address instead."
