Here's another recipe, I remove the subject add-on, then I use
safecat do deliver it in my maildir, using the main dir vs the tmp
dir, the advantage of that is the main dir gets the mtime updated,
so you can sort maildirs according to time of last delivery.

| sed -e '/^Subject:.*\[nycbug-talk\]/s/\[nycbug-talk\] //g'
:0 a
|safecat bsd-nycbug bsd-nycbug/new

I use ^Sender to help filter mail addressed to both
me and the list, to my personal and list mailboxes.

Addressing the bigger question in the thread. I use
my smtpd to deliver to the maildir(s) in my user
account on the same machine (I do also pop to the
same maildirs for some accounts). Then I use ssh
(when I'm remote) to access mutt on that host. The
limitation is I can only see my mail when I have an
internet connection (or my server is localhost!).
