Is it?  I filter mailing lists into a separate folder for each mailing
list using procmail (using the RFC 2919 List-Id header).  I also have
notifications on my cell phone (via my IMAP client) for mail in my inbox
and certain other folders, but not mailing lists.  So if I receive the
CC first, and the mail from the list second, whatever de-duplication I
do, I've already been notified that I have a potentially important email
in my inbox.  Please inform me how I am to go back in time and not
receive the notification on my cell phone, or please explain to me why
your mail to the list is so important that I should receive notification
of it wherever I am and whatever I'm doing.
