Personally I find that filtering email from mailing lists into folders
is a sure-fire way to ensure that I never hear about anything that
happens on high volume lists.

The general workflow when I used mutt used to be this:

* Check mailing list folder - how many unread mails are there since last
* Under 50 -> OK, browse & read. Over 50 and under 100 -> Think about
it. Over 100 -> Mark as read.

Even if I now have 400 new emails in my main mail inbox every day, you
can rest assured that I read *at least* the subject line of every mail I
get. If I filtered mail into folders, I suspect that I'd have started
missing threads on maemo-users quite a while ago.
