It's nothing magical. Mail clients that support search folders (what
used to be called virtual folders in Evo) allow you to define search
criteria for the messages to include. What I do is define a "Fedora"
search folder with the criteria:

Recipients - contains - fedora-list at
Mailing list - is - fedora-list at
* Search Folder Sources: "Specific folders":
	imap:pocallaghan at[Gmail]/Sent Mail
	imap:pocallaghan at

Obviously some of this depends on my own Gmail setup, since I use Gmail
to receive this list and have a Gmail filter to label the traffic as
"Fedora". The folder definitions are just the result of selecting the
appropriate (real) folders using the Add button.

Several things here could probably be changed, e.g. use the Mailing List
criterion instead of Recipients, include threads (I don't because I
don't think it matters in this case) and maybe other stuff, such as "not
the thread about GNU/Linux :-)

I'm sure something similar could be done in Thunderbird.
