        Suggestions for keeping up with Bugtraq:
1.      Filter it into a separate folder
2.      If the message contains the name of a package that you're
        interested in, keep it.
3.      If the subject contains a vendor stamp, discard (ie, RHSA,
        GLSA, etc).
4.      If the subject contains software you're not interested in, filter
        (ie. PHPNuke)
5.      Use a threaded e-mail reader, and use the "ignore thread" feature.
