It is very simple to notice when you have been replied to in the mail list.

I perceive, Watson, that you amalgamate all your main into one 'folder'.

No, but I do have all the opensuse mailinglists I subscribe to going
to one folder.

By your own admission this isn't working for you. What ever package you
are using can certainly filter better than that.

FCS!!! Gmail can build you just about any folder structure you want
and manage it reliably. It can flag mail as important if your name appears
in the body. It can enforce Plonk lists too.

and organized mails, all properly flagged.

I don't routinely count them, but it seems like well over 100 emails a
day from all of those. If I ignore that pile for a couple days, it is
simply too big to get through in any detail and thus I'm sure I miss
relevant emails on threads for which I'm participating.

The "reply-all" button is a tried and true solution that allows
filtering based on thread participation.
