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.
