That doesn't sound too difficult a problem for procmail (or
mailfilter) to sort out.

Perhaps your idea of a solution to the problem needs rethinking.  Why
are you insisting on using such a complex system?  Perhaps that's what
needs re-working, not Debian list posting rules.  Yes, I am suggesting
you change.  You're insisting your system isn't working for you.

Any technology distinguishable from magic is insufficiently advanced.
