Hi

(sorry for the delay; I missed this initial message)

I've no plans to do either, since (as far as I can tell) this 
isn't a facility offered by the mailing list software W3C runs.

It may not be obvious in some mail readers, but this (and other)
information is already supplied in the headers to each message.
For example, all posts to www-rdf-interest include the following
headers, which indicate that this is a mailing list (useful for 
'vacation' message software), which list it is, unsubscription 
and other documentation.

	Precedence: list
	List-Id: <www-rdf-interest.w3.org>
	List-Help: <http://www.w3.org/Mail/>
	List-Unsubscribe: <mailto:www-rdf-interest-request@w3.org?subject=unsubscribe>


Most modern mail software should be able to filter on these.
If anyone has an appropriate howto on this for popular 
mail readers (eg. Outlook) I'd be happy to link it from the Interest
Group home page...

cheers,

Dan
