Does anybody know how to make M.Thunderbird to use "List-Id" header to

Hi; this is an announcement to let you know that in future
emails to all QEMU project mailing lists (including this one)
will no longer have the [qemu-*] tag in their Subject line.

We need to make this config change because having the mailing
list server edit subject lines like this conflicts with the
increasingly common DKIM/DMARC anti-email-forgery system. We
used to work around this by having the list server rewrite
email From addresses instead, but this has proven to have
bad consequences (notably that patches applied from emails
to QEMU can end up with incorrect authorship by accident).

If you were using the Subject line tag to filter QEMU emails,
you'll need to change your mail client's config to instead
look at the "List-Id:" message header to identify list traffic
(you can do this now without waiting for us to change the
list config to drop the subject tags).

Apologies for any inconvenience that this upcoming config
change might cause you.

AFAIK, there is no general solution, other then adding List-Id to the list of identifiers 
and adding the supplied list-id by the message as identifier. Just like currently, you 
have to change the filter from "from...." into List-Id for every filter for 
messages using List-Id.
Mine is now working for this list.
