Okay, I see what you're saying.  But it's not a duplicate if you just 
check for "From contains questions at", because that matches 
both "freebsd-questions at" and "questions at".

What I'm saying is that all messages from the list will have a unique 
List-Id header.  For example:

List-Id: User questions <>

You can probably do something like

     List-Id contains questions at

But I don't use Thunderbird enough to know for sure.
