If match "* ^To.*debian-user" you will miss all CC:ed and BCC:ed mail to
the list. You will also miss all mail that have named the list e.g.
"Debian Mailinglist <debianb-user@...>"

One solution would be to match "* ^(To|Cc).*debian-user@.*" which will get
all mails whith "debian-user@" somewhere on the lines beginning with "To"
or "Cc". This method is very usefull for list that don't add a header..
which the debian-lists fortunatly do. The best alternative would therefore
be to match the added header instead:

* ^X-Mailing-List:.*debian-user@.*
