I can't believe that you've got what looks like 2000+ emails hitting
your inbox each day and you're not using anything to filter them into
folders.
I've got to the point now where I perhaps have 3-4 emails a week into my
inbox but 1000's scattered into various folders for mailing lists and
even down to certain people having their own filters.

Personally I don't mind if the subject has the mailman [listname] or
not, as long as there's some way for me to filter it.

Filtering into folders also means I can choose when I want to look at
certain emails. I may want to read one from my accountant, about my tax
return, before scanning through the kernel mailing list or nginx for
example.
