Gah. Sure, when redirecting mails, the other person acts like he does

There should be a difference -- RFC2822 says Resent-* headers should be
added if a human does it, but not if a .forward file does it. See Â3.6.6

Well, agreed. Any of this filters can fail in some weird situations. I
should not have claimed no failures at all.

Actually, filtering on Sender: can indeed give the same false positives
as List-Id: if the MUA of the person resending the message actually
implements RFC2822 Â3.6.6 properly and keeps the same Sender: field when
resending a message.

What's better is to use the SMTP reverse-path -- which will often be
found in the Return-path: header. Although I use that myself for all
lists, I tend not to recommend it because different MTAs may not add it,
or may do something different.
