I already filter the mails into their own folders. However, I don't see an
option to explicitly tell kmail that those folders contain mailing list (not
that I know how this will matter).

Furthermore, I suggest having a footer with unsubscription / help information
in addition to the header because the header may not be visible, not all E-
mail clients may display it, and people may otherwise be unaware of it. I have
often seen some "unsubscribe" messages sent to mailing lists and putting the
ubsubscription information in the footer greatly reduces that.

I know how to unsubscribe - that's not the problem.
