I made 5 or 6 rules in out look express to filter the rpml to a certain directory. I do not have any problems any more. Add one that looks for

  Dear List,
  As recent years have passed the volume of email landing on my desk has increased dramatically and managing it is becoming a problem. Outlook's Inbox Assistant helps in some situations, but you need to be able to specify terms appearing in the To: line, the CC: line, the From: line or the Subject: line before it can divert the mail to a folder.
  As far as I know there is no way of characterising a mail from the rpml - is this correct?
  Even though I am moaning about the volume of mail I have to manage, I have recently joined another list. It is a discussion group about the football team I support - Arsenal.
  Here, the list management software automatically adds "[arsenal]" to the start of the subject line - thereby making it easy to divert into another folder.
  Would a similar system be possible here? I have no idea on this sort of thing.
  The only details I have been able to find out are that the list management software is called the "ezmlm program", and the particular group I have joined was originally set up at MIT.
  Any advice on how I can better manage my life?
