Yes that would make things a little easier in the subject line have the board model you are discussing (example [BITX20] [BITX40] [BITXv?] [BITXv6] etc ) in the subject line then design a mail sort filter and msg folder structure  (ie like Thunderbird) transfer incoming emails for each separate board type to it's own folder.

That way you wouldn't miss anything: general interest posts would be in normal inbox and separate board model  folders with only the emails applicable to the specific board under discussion. If you have no interest in other boards just bulk mark them as read periodically.

Another approach is to set your email preference to "email each message separately", then use your mail reader effectively:
1. create a filter to put all BITX20 email in its own incoming folder
2. automatically remove the topics you're not interested in as part of the filtering (or use a search / mark / delete all sequence each time you check that folder)
Details will depend on your mail reader, but the above is easy in gmail for example.

Skipping that this is a 15-1/2 year old list originally started to discuss Farhan's BITX20 design and has evolved into a home for all his BITX designs, you might be happier doing what I suggested below and usually paste as a response every time this topic comes up when there is a new version of Farhan's classic.


Go to https://groups.io/g/BITX20/editsub and set email to a level you can live with. I like just the daily summary but many prefer none.  Then use the topic view https://groups.io/g/BITX20/topics on the website and read what you are interested in and the list reads almost like a forum.  The search could use some work but at least this converts the fire hose to a drinkable level.
