If you examine the headers of old and new lists, you will find the headers
are the same:
  To: the list
  From: the originator
  Reply-to: the list
in both the old and the new lists.

So you must have had your filters set to accept the old list. They need to
be changed.

What you may be asking for is a Prefix in the subject: something I have
been considering. It's now switched on.

It's useful to most peple to know that there are a mass of Headers in all
emails: these are generally hidden by your email program, but somewhere
there will be a 'View Headers' option, maybe Control H, which will show
you a lot. 

Some of these headers are very simple. Others can get quite technical.
