Re: [Rd] Suggestions for R-devel / R-help digest format

I use filters in gmail as well, and it works great. Here's my filter for r-devel:

Has the words: list:"r-devel.r-project.org" Do this: Skip Inbox, Apply label "r-devel", Never send it to Spam

A really easy way to create mailing list filters in Gmail is to click "show details" on the From line of the email, and then click "Filter messages from this mailing list".

Hope this helps,
