Google gets your message back from the list server, but it hides it by 
default.  I'm fairly sure it is available in you gmail inbox if you dig 
hard enough.

Really?  I know they don't support STARTTLS and, instead, use separate imap 
and imaps ports (although the RFCs now recommend against that), but that's 
the only complaint I've ever heard about their IMAP.

I do all my filtering server-side with dovecot-imapd and their seive 
implementation.  It is very nice, and I don't have to worry (too much) 
about my email being data mined.

That said, dovecot is not a real solution for the OP.
