Consider this my semi-regular plug for Gnus.  Gnus can handle
mailing-list group addresses [1], and you can also make sure that you
never see duplicate messages, no matter what other people's mailers
are doing (unless, of course, they actually send you two different
messages with the same content, but different message ID's).

[1] I haven't set it up to do this yet, but it's on my to-do list.
Perhaps I'll get some time soon.
