I agree with Garance. I am on a couple of lists via Yahoo that have the
prefix, and because of the web interface, I only see the name of the
group in the subject, never the actual subject. This is something I
cannot change because of the constraints of the web layout and the space
reserved for advertising even though I adblock it. I also have a 19"
wide screen at its highest resolution, so I can't imagine how bad it
would be if I had a regular size.

Every mail client I know has filters that can be set to automatically
shift incoming mail into a folder via half a dozen fields.
