I use kmail too. I am filtering the debian-user mailing list to a
seperate folder called "debian-user" (smart, eh? ;) ) with the builtin
filter options. I use the "X-Mailing-List: " header for that. The
folder options are set to "folder contains a mailing list" and the
mailing-list adress: "firstname.lastname@example.org". Now when you reply
to a thread, you want to hit the "l" button (ell) instead of "r" This
will reply to the list.

I tried that, but I hate vim being the default editor, setting it to
xemacs caused problems in my xterm. Furthermore I use pop/smtp to
get/sen my emails via a freemail provider, and I did not want to mess
around with exim & co. to send mail. Kmail does this all ok for me. I
guess I am lame, too.
