I must state that I appreciate hearing the source of the message as I arrow 
through the list of messages.
This list does that, and in Windows, Outlook Express, you need to go under 
view to columns, and select the "from" column to be shown.

I have to concur with Kenny. I personally find lists that have their
name in the subject line to be very annoying. If you want to filter
based on a list, then do that by filtering on the to line, as well as
other info in the headers for this list, as Kenny has said. From what
I can recall, outlook express is capable of doing this. I can't speak
for other windows mail clients though.
