I think you must misunderstand something in what I said.  I'm talking
about ways to get visual cues for the list origins of emails.  The fact
that the "subscribe" setting in .muttrc allows the display to show the
list's address (the "To:" address) instead of the sender's address (the
"From:" address) is a means of achieving that.  That's not the best way,
in my opinion, to make the list association of an email clear, but it's
the way the "subscribe" setting does it.
