Use your email software filter.  By setting some rules that are something  
like the below you can filter out a lot;

	If email is FROM nafex at lists.ibilio.org and
	the BODY does not contain the words "apple/s"
	or "pear/s" direct email to TRASH.

However, you will miss many emails that pertain to apples and pears that  
do not contain those key words.  Searching the SUBJECT line will lose even  
more emails.  We are notoriously bad for not changing SUBJECT lines when  
the dialog shifts.

Filters are fine if you are willing to miss a lot of email.  I just use  
the filter between my ears and if the content is running in a direction  
that does not interest me, I simply delete it in seconds.
