        That's a good idea, Maura, thanks.

        It's a Google group, rather than a Yahoo one, but there is an unsub message in the text and I can use that.

        Happily I managed to get into contact with Yahoo Mail Techs and have had a mail from one of them, given her permission to go into my account to try to sort out the problem, etc.  If she can't fix it, though, I'll certainly give this a try.

        Thanks

        I had the same problem when I filtered using the "Subject" and "From" lines, so I switched over to filtering with the unsubscribe address that's found in the body of every group email, and that fixed things for me.

        In Yahoo! mail, the filters look like this:

        If... Body contains "GroupName-unsubscribe@yahoogroups.com"

        Then... Move message to "Group Name" folder

        In GMail, the filters look like this:

        Has the words: "GroupName-unsubscribe@yahoogroups.com"

        Skip the Inbox (Archive it)

        Apply the label: Group Name

        Never send it to Spam


        Hope that helps.

        Maura
